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"

~an Irish day~

although obviously not a fan of st.p himself today i celebrate my Irish roots!

even more so as i recently discovered my great gran on my dad's side was Irish~all i now need to find out is why she ended up in durham married to a Welsh man!

so Irish on both sides

i am starting to think its time to start saving and have a nice trip over there.

well today the new forest is basking in glorious sunshine with not a cloud in the sky and shortly we will be going down to check out our newly allocated allotment! yes the parish council phoned up and have given us one with a small shed, next door to the badly overgrown one we were originally given, so we still have access to the well.
of course i shall be going armed with my camera, paper, pen and a tape measure to make plans for what goes where.
swampy bought me a really nice 'beginners guide' to allotment gardening, which has a nice little layout of an allotment which doesnt look far off the size of our plot so i think it will be a useful guide for our plot.

well i hope you all have a great day and the sun is shining wherever you are
