The Flame Haired Solstice Dreamer

Cold winter brings the Everfrost and jewels every tree
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
A flame~haired dreamer wanders there and shelters from the wind
And spins her dreams around the trees to break the ties that bind
She takes her thread and spins anew and how the Greenwood smiles
As she spins a spell for freedom and for her spirit Wylde

The dreamer finds an ancient oak and shelters in his lee
In a forest new as birth and old as old can be
Tis summer now and birdsong weaves its magick through her spells
And humming bees drum drowsily in the foxglove's bells
The dreamer sits beneath the oak with yarn upon her knee
And spins and knits and weaves her dreams and sets her spirit free

"When birds fall from the sky and the animals are dying, a new tribe of people...shall come unto the earth from many colors, classes, creeds, who by their actions and deeds shall make the earth green again. they will be known as the warriors of the Rainbow"

~after two years its done~

done what? i hear you cry

well two years ago in my quest for a really comfortable pair of boots/shoes i discovered Green Shoes and fell head over heels in love with a pair of boots...

these puppies

well its taken some saving, as they are handmade to order, and i have had swampy on his hands and knees this evening with two tape measures, paper and pencil, drawing around my feet...then i went online and ordered them, in the color seen here~emerald.

oh i am so excited!

i know it seems crazy to get so excited over some boots but...two years!!! thats a long time to want something, and for so long now we have been spending money preparing for our new home, spending money on our new home and only getting new clothes in the sales and from charity shops (wool fair isle patterned tank top last week for £3!) thats its such a luxury to buy something new and special. the bonus is they re-sole them too so last forever.

i am having lovely visions of all the crazy colored tights i can wear with them!
