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"

~gorgeous green boots~

my long-awaited boots arrived for me to try for fit on thursday
and they are better than i ever imagined they would be!
it was odd wearing them around the house with no outer sole on but they fit so well and are the most comfortable thing i have ever put on my feet that feel like i am wearing none.
yesterday afternoon they were packed back up and sent back to green shoes to have the soles put on and finished~i am really hoping that they are back with me by the end of next week.
so now i am looking for lots a funky colored tights to wear with them and digging out my skirts and dresses as they are far too lovely to hide under trousers.
i shall post a picture of them all finished off as soon as they come back to me.

Oh, they look positively yummy! I don't wear much green....it doesn't do much for my skin tones but I do love that color. And you're right. Don't hide them under trousers! Show them off!!

Blogger just ate my comment! I'll try again. Your new boots are positively yummy! Green is not a color I can wear but I love the green of your boots.

You're right; they are much too gorgeous to hide under trousers. Show them off!!
