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"

~my feet are home again~

we are back in out little home in the midst of the forest after our longest time awat for ages~12 nights sleeping in Pretty Pagan.

swampy was a star and unpacked most of our haul when we arrived home and i have visited some of your blogs, but only made it so far...i shall have to do some more catch-up tomorrow there are so many of you!

our time away was good and bad, you will know some of this if you have visited 'walking wild' on tumblr.

for now i just wanted to pop in and say hello as my bed is calling me~i shall make a hot drink and cuddle up with a copy of Alys Fowlers 'the thrify forager' which was kindly sent to me from yorshire in return for one of my shawls :)

so goodnight all

I loved Alys Fowler's tv show the edible garden - I wish she would make another show, not read any of her books, but they look good x

good to have you home and blogging again :-)

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