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"

Hopi Prophecy


while looking at the verderers website i noticed this...

Announcement: Thursday 7th May 2009
Successful Prosecution of Hit and Run Driver.
A foal was found dead on the B3078 at 5.30 a.m. on the 5th June 2008. The foal appeared to have been dragged along the road by a vehicle.
Following a plea for information in the press, a gentleman came forward and provided information that led to the successful prosecution of Mr T****** B***** from Lover, near Salisbury who had collided with the foal.
Mr B**** was prosecuted in the New Forest Magistrates Court in Lyndhurst and found guilty of driving without due care and attention. He was fined £900.00, ordered to pay £60.00 costs and £15.00 victim surcharge and had his licence endorsed with 6 points.
The Verderers will always encourage the police to pursue prosecutions where there is clear evidence that motorists responsible for accidents with Forest livestock were driving in an inappropriate manner, or, when drivers fail to report accidents to the police.

i blanked some words obviously, but if anyone does with to read it in full then just click the link~it is there in the public domain for those interested.
this is the downside to living here, but its good to see people are prosecuted well and truly.
given this man is relatively local to the forest, with salisbury being just outside the boundaries, he and others who do the same thing, year in year out, would have known there are animals on the road at any point and so should have driven accordingly and prevented obvious suffering and distress.

but oh no, so many just treat the roads like a motorway, day and night with no care~it makes me spit bricks and those who get caught deserve every point on their licence.

I think they should bring hanging back just for such cases. I hate people like that, they have no useful purpose in this world as far as i'm concerned. It might sound a bit harsh but hangings too good for um.

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