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"

well the cold that has been threatening the last few days has decided to fully make itself known.
i was awake a chunk of last night coughing, sneezing and sniffing and today it has taken me a good few hours to really get to now...unfortunately with m.e and diabetes even slight colds make me few worse than i should be with a mild cold.
luckily i had contacted my tutor last night about an extension for my essay which is due in on friday and i have been given an extra week so if i do feel really bad over the next few days i can afford to have a day or two away from my books.
as i feel okay now i have decided to squeeze in a few hours work this afternoon~ i have two other pieces of work that has to be done by the end of january and i figure making full use of my given extension eats into the time i need for the other work...and given that i will be in new york for a week in january i did really want to get all my work done by then~there is nothing worse than being away and knowing you have an assignment to come back to!
so any sneezing you may hear online today will be me!

Oh I know how you feel with assignments, I got behind once and took an assignment with me to finish when we went to the beach house for our winter break. It was the biggest mistake I could have made, sitting there working on it for nearly the whole week while Tom and the girls went beachcombing and shell collecting.

I was miserable.

Hope you're feeling better soon.
