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"

~on swampys coat!~

you find me still sporting this bruxus/migraine/sickness issue but i thought i would quickly pop by because a couple of you lovely folk asked about swampys coat from my last post.
he bought it when we went to busfest back in septemeber from our friend and initially tried it on and put it back...i think he thought it was a bit too wacky for him!
however he was with a gaggle of women-me, step daughter o' mine, niece and sister and we all loved it on him and so he relented and bought it.
it is a heavy cotton patchwork with little images in some of the patches and lined with a nice warm fleece...this is one very similar from our friends shop...
hope today finds you all well...i am now off to take more tablets and continue to fend this off...ohh and the sickness maybe a bug that is going around the village!

I love the coat. Thanks for posting the link, been thinking about getting some nice things for F but hard to find nice mens stuff sometimes(probably because I don't know where to go....)

Hope you are feeling better. Never nice to feel ill...

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