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"

~signs of spring~

it is chilly but quite spring like here in our corner of the new forest and we have a welcome burst of color from the plants that survived five years of neglect~although i have had to rescue a few daffodils that were trampled by great lumbering paws belonging to a certain black and white whirlwind who has not yet realized the flowerbeds are out of bounds!

because we were over run with daffodils and our neighbour janet who lives in a really cute little cottage has none, swampy is at this moment out planting the rescued daffoldils, which he left in a nice protective ball of dirt, all along her fence~so in aweek or two they should be out in all their glory.
our soil seems to be quite good but we thought we would give it a spring boost so we have decided to buy some 'zoo poo' from a local nursery 'otters' that comes from paignton zoo

It's lovely to see all the Spring flowers coming out isn't it? Nice of Swampy to give your neighbour the excess daffodils. It isn't clumping paws that have broken some of mine but the strong wind that we had yesterday. Shall have to go and rescue them and pop them in a vase.

All things share the same breath~the beast, the tree, the man, the air shares its spirit with all the life it supports.
