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"

~a cody update~

well the vets called and because cody was so good and let them examine him properly they were able rule out anything stuck in his throat, they took a load of blood for testing and it turns out he has a really bad tummy bug.

it seems there is a bug going around our area and some dogs, cody for instance! are not responding to their original antibiotic treatment and so become worse, needing a stronger dose of antibiotics.

this means no sedation, x-ray, anesthetic and endoscope! what a relief!

they have put him on a drip however and keeping him overnight because he had become so dehydrated~hopefully in the morning he will finally get to eat and all being well we shall have back home with us soon after.

oh but it is so quiet here without him-it was horrible coming home with none of the usual wild, springer greeting and it is so quiet without him wandering around with his tags on his coller tinkling away. he has been so poorly that all of his christmas presents are still sitting, untouched and his bowls, washed and sitting ont
the counter top.

still fingers crossed we will be back to springer mayhem tomorrow or soon after!

I'm so glad that the news about Cody is good, hopefully he'll be over this bug very soon and back to his normal bouncy self. Tell him from me that he's been a big, brave dog!

Nothing worse than coming home to a house that is too quiet ... hopefully, now the vets have a better idea of what's going on, Cody should improve - rehydrating him will have a huge impact, poor lamb, he must have been so miserable!

He looks such a sweetie on your photos - all being well, he'll be back to his old self soon.

So glad to hear Cody's on the mend, the house is so quiet without those mad springers. Woody and Beau send a big springer lick and a high five! XXX Pixie XXX

I DO hope Cody is really better and it was really "only" a digestion bug and the antibiotics and drip do their work. I would so much hate anything else!

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