The Stone

The Tale below was carved one night,
Upon the Stone, by candlelight
...most won’t believe, but some just might
.........most won’t believe, but some just might



.                         Preface

Well James made Beth his lovely bride
(And angels smiled, though teary eyed)
...their bodies bound, their spirits tied
.........their bodies bound, their spirits tied

Upon her hand, a shimmer shone,
As bright as blood, a ruby Stone 
...and brighter still, as love had grown
.........and brighter still, as love had grown

Soon James was sent to man a sail
So Beth removed her wedding veil
...her eyes were bright, her face was pale
.........her eyes were bright, her face was pale

“Well, I’ll be here when you return”
Said Beth to James, who kissed in turn
...a kiss that made her body burn
.........a kiss that made her body burn



.                         BETH’S TALE

1.              The Dream
One night, within a dream deformed,
The cawing of a Crow informed
“...a Ship was stripped where winter stormed
.........a Ship was stripped where winter stormed

Midst winds and waves the thunder boomed
The Ship of Death was surely doomed
...the sea engulfed, the sea entombed
.........the sea engulfed, the sea entombed

Your James... denied by Davy Jones!
His spirit gone, his flesh and bones
...are resting now amongst the Stones
.........are resting now amongst the Stones”



2.               The Quest

Awoken by the ebon Wight
And beckoned by the baneful bight
...I left before the morning light
.........I left before the morning light

Throughout the realm I rode a roan
Until, in time, I reached the Stone
...where shades and dreams in darkness groan 
.........where shades and dreams in darkness groan 

While skipping up and down the sky
A missing moonbeam mocked my eye
...enough to make a Swallow cry
.........enough to make a Swallow cry

For someone stole a star or two
And something else that fate withdrew –
...my jewel of joy, my James Bijou   
.........my jewel of joy, my James Bijou

The shadows of the evening swelled
Where demons of the dusk had dwelled
...and in the far, a vesper knelled
.........and in the far, a vesper knelled

The Stone, beneath the sky, stood cold –
Between the runes, a vapour strolled
...a cloak of fleecy fog consoled
.........a cloak of fleecy fog consoled

A Raven on a branch, enthroned,
Her wings waved once, a wail intoned
...beyond the bay, a banshee moaned
.........beyond the bay, a banshee moaned

I lay beside the Stone, his bride
I lay beside the Stone and cried
...but were it I, instead, that died
.........but were it I, instead, that died

The rainbow of the moon fell dim
A midnight Swan soon ceased to swim
...as if to hide all hint of him
.........as if to hide all hint of him

Between the willows in the swale
There sang a Bird, a Nightingale
...which left me faint and feeling frail
.........which left me faint and feeling frail



3.              Contact

I felt him breathe within a breeze
Responding to my anguished pleas
...and leaves blew by abandoned trees
.........and leaves blew by abandoned trees

“I miss you too, my darling Beth”
Re-echoed from the Ship of Death
...the future buried in a breath
.........the future buried in a breath
	
The Stone lit up a ruby sheen
And clouds were kindled crystalline
...with consequences, unforeseen
.........with consequences, unforeseen

Above, the wretched Raven soared
To where the Ship of Death lay moored
...beneath, the icy ocean roared
.........beneath, the icy ocean roared



4.               Release

I’m joined with James beneath the Stone,
Though to the Ship my spirit’s flown,
...for nevermore to be alone
.........for nevermore to be alone



.                         Epilogue

That night the wayward winds were weird 
The Ship of Death had disappeared
...coyotes called and mortals feared
.........coyotes called and mortals feared

At dusk, the craven shadows crawled
At dawn, the winds of mourning called
...upon the Stone two names were scrawled
.........upon the Stone two names were scrawled

The Raven sits, with wings outspread,
Atop the Stone which shades the dead
...it sometimes shimmers ruby red
.........it sometimes shimmers ruby red



.                         Epitaph

Between the sounds, where silence seeps,
Their love lives on and never sleeps
...and yet, the weeping willow weeps
.........and yet, the weeping willow weeps



inspired by ~fc~

A Little Snowflake

There once was a little snowflake
that was beautiful, cold and white
He was created up high within the clouds
during a storm one winters night

There were millions and millions of other flakes
but, no two that look alike
So, every snowflake received a name
and, his given name was Mike

Now as long as the wind was blowing hard
the more Mike hung around
But, it made him large and heavy
For, now he's heading towards the ground

There was Susan, Steven, Jimmy and Kyle
There was Sally, Kim and bill
They all came down together with Mike
as they landed on a sill

Of a cold and frosty window
on that stormy winters night
They gathered all together 
as they waited for morning light

The sun then rose above the horizon
it's light...lit up every flake
The colors that came from all Mike's friends
a rainbow it did make

The beautiful snow lit morning
left Mike nowhere else to roam
But, he was happy to be there with all his friends
as he made that sill his home

Non Believer

The winter's been harsh, the winter's been long.
Still it's only march and I can't hear the song.
To have spring fever, you need to be a believer.
This winter's been harsh and this winter's been long.

Shovel's and sneezes are the call of the day.
Please hand me a kleenex, it's two month's until May.
We're out, well I guess I'll just use my sleeve or.
Man if I had my way I certainly wouldn't stay.

White winds wailing where weeds wait wondering.
If the God's will ever restart thier thundering.
Or if they have just slammed down the reciever.
In disgust of all of mankinds plundering.

Faith in the four season's is our only stronghold.
Waiting for the story of sping to still be told.
Hoping the book of knowledge is not a deciever.
Our spirit's are shaken and we dare not be too bold.

For the spring fever contest/ ballad

WINTER WALK

Crackle of frost underfoot 
This snow covered wood 
Where I met you........... 
for the first time 

Clouds of breathy air, 
your cloak of deep blue, 
you made me stop and stare 

For, among the holly, 
we  both were looking for the same thing 
This cold pale sky, 
with no hint of spring 

Your first look, 
took my breath away 
Your shy smile, 
melted me 
The sun shone......... 
On that day....... 

Woods of evergreen, 
dusted with snow 
This walk.......... 
with you 
Inner glow 

This walk..........., 
with you, 
through snow 
My heart, 
wanting you so 

Your hand, 
warmed by mine 
Your shy glance 
How those blue eyes... 
did dance! 

This love did flow, 
on this walk, 
on fresh fallen snow 
So white and clear, 
surrounded by trees of green 

Woods of evergreen, 
fresh fallen snow 
Where our love can be seen 
footprints....... 
side by side, 
long ago 

Where I first met you, 
on that winters day, 
among the holly and snow 
You had far to go, 
now together 
Our way 
seems so short so

YOU'LL BRING SPRING TO ME

I've been living in a blizzard
And it feels like there's no end
Trying to keep my heart warm
The freeze is fighting to get in
Seems like the power's fading
Threats of darkness and fear
But no matter how cold it gets
I know Spring must be near

There's warmth in my tomorrow 
Light I almost feel and see
This Winter won't last forever
And the cold that's holding me
The snowstorm that I'm facing
Began when she said goodbye
It's gonna suddenly melt away
And on that day I'll know why

There's one girl in this world
She'll be a perfect fit for me
Someday our eyes will meet
You'll bring sweet Spring to me

So I'm keeping my eyes open
From this blizzard I'll survive
When Spring feels so far away
The hope of you keeps me alive

There's warmth in my tomorrow 
Light I almost feel and see
This Winter won't last forever
And the cold that's holding me
The snowstorm that I'm facing
Began when she said goodbye
It's gonna suddenly melt away
And on that day I'll know why

There's one girl in this world
Who is a perfect fit for me
Someday our eyes will meet
Girl, you'll bring Spring to me

You're my tomorrow
Hope's still burning bright
You might even be today
I feel this could be the night

You might even be today
I feel this could be the night

Ode to a Cherry Tree

Peering through plate glass at a puzzling view, In the midst of hot coffee’s morning ritual brew. Staring out with amazement and wonderfully struck, By our Cherry Tree’s overnight sensation run amuck! By nature’s own standard, cruel joke she has played, Million blossoms wide open one February day. This juvenile sapling knows not what it feels, Sprouting vivid Pink colors, the show it now steals. From those all around laying dormant in state, Expecting nature’s cue to blossom their own petals awake. And by then poor young cherry will have muted her splash, Replaced by green leaves summer storms will soon thrash. But alas all this splendor making warm visual sense, In the short time required for fresh java to dispense. Tomorrow I’ll once again observe through plate glass, The wonders waiting just beyond cold winter’s Rye Grass. Submitted to Giorgio A. V. Contest themed: Impress me with a small poem II! 1) user name: wedge 2) choice of motif: nature

Winter

The land now has a blanket bright,
A coat of snow of purest white
As far as one can see the sight.
The air now has a bitter blast
That bites the skin with numbness fast,
And here and there the drifts are cast.
The cars and trucks must drive with care
To keep from skids and sliding there;
There’s tinkling of some bells somewhere.
The homes all dotted up with lights
And decorations in the night--
Such vast array, such pretty sights.
And somewhere singing fills the sky,
A manger scene where a baby lies,
And Christmas once again draws nigh.
Though all seems cold and dark and dead,
There lies beneath this wintry bed
A world in wait for spring ahead.

The Tree

                                            The Tree

Through the foggy mist of a new day dawning
Appears a huge tree, awaiting the birth of another winter morning.

All that remains is its bare branches stretching toward the sky
And an old abandoned nest, left by its owner who traveled south so it wouldn't die.

The tree appears lonely but somehow full of hope
As if it knows Spring will come which enables it to cope.

A few months have gone by and the faithful tree is still there
But now it's consumed with excitement from its first breath of spring air.

It seems new life has come to the tree within a blink of an eye
It now stands picturesque, full of lavish green foliage set against the baby blue sky.

It waves its branches proudly with the breeze as if to show off its features
Which also seems to serve as a welcome sign to all of God's little creatures.

It appears to be much happier, now that its friends are back once again
Cradling brand new birds' nests and providing shelter during the rain.

The little squirrels also take advantage of their most generous host
It seems they like chasing each other up and down the tree's trunk the most.

The tree is now bursting with activity
With all of God's wee ones living His promise of love and longevity.

All through the summer the tree takes pleasure as it continually strives
To serve as the best meeting place for everything that creeps, leaps or flies.

Full of contentment, I'll bet the tree lets out a happy sigh
Every time it watches a baby bird learn how to fly
Or whenever a caterpillar turns into a pretty butterfly.

I often wonder if the tree truly understands
The major part it plays in God's circle of life simply because it stands.

Fall has now arrived and the tree appears sort of saddened by the sound
Of its first leaf gently falling to the ground.

All of its friends begin packing it up as they gather for a big revival
That's when the tree wishes them a safe and happy journey as they head south for their survival.

The tree bids each one farewell and says loud and clear
"To each God's speed and have no fear
For I'll be waiting right here when you come back next year."

It is now winter and a year in the life of the tree has come full circled once more
Although lonely, it is bigger and stronger than ever before.

But I know not to feel sadness, especially for the tree's sake
For in God's plan, He makes sure even the tree gets a well-deserved break.

New Year's Eve

Can’t think about the Year that didn’t last
Can’t fight the time and how it passed so fast…
Voices were cheerful that night
Everyone was full of silver light

I heard the sounds but didn’t care
I couldn’t help but only think and stare…
I dreamed of love that possibly I’ll never share
And of life that was just like a fairytale.

In that second of complete despair
I saw the moon and realized it was all a dare
Then your voice whispered in my ear
Promising me all I needed to hear…

If Only in My Dreams

Standing on top
The mountain below
I feel it beckon
A world of snow.

It stretches below me
It pulls at my heart
I can't live without it
Yet we're worlds apart.

Its unending beauty
A place so serene
I want to flow to it
Yet it is a dream.

A dream that I live in
A dream - yet its real
It's part of my make up
It's something I feel.

The calm of the wild
The expanse of just space
The pleasure of feeling
Cold wind in my face.

The knowing I own it
This wide untouched land
And then not to have it
I know I can't stand.

And so I go back to
This place of my dreams
If only in pictures
I am there - so it seems.

LET FRIGID WINTER COME

Let frigid winter come,
it feels nice to be lonesome,
seeing myself snuggled up
in a comfort blanket holding a cup
of cocoa by this warm fireplace...
while the wanderer's frozen face
is dotted with the whitest snowflakes
as he rubs his red, freckled nose!


Isn't this an unforgettable moment
to delight me feeling the thrill
of the Season with its distinct chill?
Isn't this the magic of Christmas
when joy is felt in a calm land
by the sound of chiming bells?


Let frigid winter come and cover everything in glistening, deep snow,
and 'though the evening will not have the moon's glow,
brightness can lead my footsteps really far...
shouldn't I play a Christmas song on this guitar?
I will go from house to house and knock on every door...
tingle everyone with great joy by spreading the message of the Savior! 


I'm very confident that going back home
stars will gleam and children will roam:
singing, shouting, swirling and throwing heavy  snowballs;
happy angels will be heard on gelid gulls,
but who minds waiting in the bitter cold... 
when a Divine Child comes down to redeem the sinful world?

As Winter Slips Away

It's another Sunday morning
Coffee's drunk and breakfast's down
The kitchen hearth's a bed of coals
And the cat is warm and round

There's dishes in the washer
And the day is gettin' on
It's not exactly coatless
But it seems the wind is gone

So we'll take a walk together
Down the dirt road through the woods
And by the time we get back home again
We'll both be feelin' good

The sun on Sunday mornin'
Is a blessing that we take
To taste Spring air and know we're there
In this heaven that we make

The humming birds are coming
For the days are warmin' up
The coffee pot's not empty yet
I'll just pour another cup

I'LL BE THINKING OF THE WARMEST SUNSHINE

I recall the cool light of the shortest days,
and the darkness of the longest nights;
I shivered under a blanket and that made dreams freeze,
even snowflakes hid stars to block their fading gleams!
I'll be thinking of the warmest sunshine,
smelling flowers that are all mine!


March is warmer than February as days get longer;
I shouldn't wait any longer, but be that dancer:
leaping on scented meadows strewn with poppies, bluebells and daisies...
while my cheeks feel the warmth of the September sun mixing with breeze!
I'll be thinking of the warmest sunshine,
dreaming of sunrises to opine!


I will invite the blue jays, the mockingbirds and the lively butterflies
to watch me dance...where's that blonde-haired boy who plays the flute?
I like to feel those golden sun rays as I felt them in the prime of my happy youth,
and isn't spring the pure essence of happiness that glows on a serene face?
Ill be thinking of the warmest sunshine,
observing lilies that climb and entwine!

The Summer of the Winter Sky

It was time for the leaves to fall,
The fields to turn white,
The birds to leave for faraway lands-
And the long cold lonely nights.

Seemed like for eternity
She hadn’t had a smile -
Frozen was the world around
Lonely she walked  for miles.
Dead were the blossoms in her garden,
And love was about to die-
And yet she prayed to her unseen friend -
For the summer of the winter sky!


Not a song was heard at dawn,
Only the echo of the wind-
In the misty field of corn
Not a farmer was seen!
A wait so long, so painful to bear
Left alone with no one so near
She was lost in her own reverie-
With tears in her dreamy eyes.
And she prayed as her heart cried-
Longing for the summer of the winter sky.



No one knows who heard her prayer
Lost amidst the silence
And yet an early morning bud 
Blossomed in her garden!
Suddenly a little sparrow was seen 
High on the branch of the willow tree
Singing a song as if to welcome-
Amidst the grey sky, a sun so warm.
And love then again knocked her door
Promising a life like never before-
And like a happy child  she opened her eyes
For it was summer for the winter sky!

Young looking lady in the tunnel

As I passed on
The sign on
The chair that says:
Martin place

A young looking lady
With brown hair
And blue dress
Smile at me.

I myself smile at her
As a response
And I think its a very reational response
Instantly about 5 seconds
Our eyes f*c*k.

She didn't say word
I got some of it
In my head 
Unspoken though

Then the tunnel exhales
Wind sweeping
On her perfume
Only small amount
I could smell

The train blows its breath
And its approaching like a bull
Then it stops in front of her

She expand her chest
And I can hear my eyes screaming
For her to stay there
And continue this sensual
Eye romance
Just for one minute 

Strangely I think
She heard my inner scream
She stop and give a smile
But her feet takes her
towards the train

The door close
As she disappear
I Try to look for any resemblance of her
I think it was also blown by the train
Even her scent was gone.

Now Im alone 
i felt like smoking
I grab my left pocket
And I still have a half of it
The cigarette

I lit a stick 
Rode the escalator
I feel like walking on
the crowded street of George street.

Maybe I will one day
see her agin 
hundred days from now
This
young looking lady
With blue dress who smile at me.

SUNLIGHT IN THE WINTER

PEACEFUL WATERS STREAMING BY THE SEA AND COOL BREEZES BLOWING FROM AFAR.

IT SPEAKS TO ME FROM THE HEAVENS ABOVE IT CRIES OUT JOY THAT NO ONE CAN EXPLAIN THAT UNSPEAKABLE JOY.

SOFT AND PURE THE SUN BROKE THROUGH THE SKY AND SHINED ON ME.

WHEN DARKNESS TRIED TO INVADE AND BRING MISERY INTO MY SOUL.

GOD SAW FIT TO OPEN THE HEAVENS AND SHINE HIS LOVE ON ME.

HE CALLED MY NAME AND SAID:MY SWEET CHILD DO NOT FEAR FOR I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS.

MY SPIRIT WAS SOON LIFTED AND RELIEVED.

Heartstone Christmas

A special time
When the sun shone bright
In clear winter light
 
Robin Redbreasts
Darted back and forth
Singing gaily
The splash of red
Upon the snow
As they were being fed
 
In a magical world
Belonging to you and me
Christmas , came
In our hearts
The joy of giving
Beneath the tree
 
In a castle
To the right of the Winding Stair
A great tree grew
A mighty fir
 
In soft winter light
The candles  lit
Upon a tree
Faerie light
 
Golden feathers from Heartstone Eagles
Were put on the tree
Ribbons and lace from the Queens
Glowing berries from the Kings
 
A living tree
Filled with colour
Decorated with love
For you
For me
 
In a magical world
Under a tree
Christmas came
In soft winter light
Kings and Queens
Gave generously
 
Gifts of love
Colour
Of tranquillity
Passed on through
A kiss
A touch
Under a tree
 
Faeries flew
Trees, whispered
A castle, lit
The love felt, too
 
A single touch
Passing
You give your self
To everyone
They share all of you
As they share too
Forever lasting
 
This is a Heartstone Christmas
For what is given
Is love
Colour
Tranquillity
Under a tree
 
There is no greater gift
Then giving all of you
The light inside glowed
You wanted this,
and it showed
 
I want to share
A Heartstone Christmas
With you
Hold your hand
See the Northern Lights
Faeries too
 
For a Christmas at Heartstone
Is a time for love
A time to be free
Where the heart knows
Of everything
For it shows
In you

Wyoming Winter


It’s a Wyoming winter--there’s snowflakes and sleet coming down,
The cowboy is hiding away from the trouble in town.

Now, the gambler he cheated the cowboy of wages,
With cards that he chose to conceal,
So the cowboy he pulled out a pistol and shot it,
And the gambler, he lost his last deal.

Then the cowboy, he rides toward the line-shack and stays there,
While Wyoming winter-winds wail,
Soon the store-keeper’s daughter arrives with provisions,
And a posse that’s close on her trail.

Now the posse gives up and turns back in the blizzard,
While Wyoming winter winds roar,
Then the lovers, they travel from Cheyenne to Denver,
And they marry, and open a store.

It’s a Wyoming winter, there’s snowflakes and sleet coming down,
It’s a Wyoming winter, they’re safe from the trouble in town.

winter dream part two

she was my winter dream
with promise of spring
dreamed her one cold night
and every night since
she became the light in my life
she became laughter and warmth
a song that played me sweetly
she was my winter dream
frightening how quickly became everything to me
scary how quick became more than just memory
became more than me
i saw her in the falling rain
saw her in the light fading away to the east
saw her in my sanity disappearing into the night
saw her everywhere i thought beauty should be
when all other hope had faded
tasted so near to real for a moment
tasted like summer starlight kisses
like vibrant light of the heart brought to life
but then...

Winter signs

Howling winter wail
snow covered mountains swell
tis but it's season time to abound
when cold shapes with ice to surround
branches breaking down with twig's 
falling unto the ground
lake water's frozen and crippling stream's that sound
valleys of evergreen forest beneath the moonlit night sky
these are all but winter signs

Winter Morn

Crisp white leaves lay upon the ground
snow falls heavy it doesn't make a sound
Christmas trees laid upon a fetch
and candles burn brightly
stay warm in the winter morn
sit with you're loved ones and toast to 
a new year
a new year of fears, hopes, and dreams
shivering in the bitter cold
dreaming of the days when we weren't so old
winter morn will return
until it does the summer will burn.

I DREAMED OF YOU

 
I dreamed of you
On a winter night
That one day
Under a Heartstone moon
We would meet
Soon
That it would be right
 
I dreamed of you
Of times past
Wished you were here too
Love to last
 
I dreamed of you
Close to me
The rise and fall of your chest
On a winter night
Is all I want to see
 
I dreamed of you
In a Heartstone summer
Your eyes, the colour of sky
Hand in hand
Running through
Forest and meadows too
 
I dreamed of you
You cannot stop
The emotional tide
That one day
I will be here
By your side

The Ballad of the Winter Fallen

It was the cold and dark of winter
I was outside playing alone
My fingers were chilled like cinders
I ventured far from home

I turned around and it was white
I couldn't see at all
So I closed my eyes real tight
Then I began to fall...

I fell into a slumber
Awaken by bright lights
I heard the sound of water
I felt I slept all night

I saw a beautiful girl
With a voice as enchanting as gold
Her clothes white as pearl
She wasn't that old

I took her sweet soft hand
We walked to a grave
The grave's in white sand
My soul she couldn't save

Lights of green and blue
I was suddenly in a room
Kids in white dresses too!
Could it be my doom?

Taken to water so clear
I could hear my dad calling
His voice full of fear
The sound so loud appalling

I fell into the pond
Appeared in front of the door
This is the truth my bond
My dream existed before

WHERE DO ALL THE BIRDS GO?

Where do all the birds go? 
Autumn brings rain 
The birds............ 
Gone again 
Before the winter snow 

Where do the birds go? 
Leaving me......... 
All alone.......... 
With a leafless tree 
Birds, flown 
Yet, not me 

Where did all the birds go? 
Quiet flurry of snow........ 
They gave no sign......... 
They didn't show...... 

To follow a sun...... 
The birds....... 
The Autumn rain........ 
Here again.......... 
The birds... 
gone.......... 
One by one 

Where do all the birds go? 
I do not know 
I have no wings, 
to follow........ 
I sit and wait for Spring 
The return of sound........ 
From the air 
Feathered things found........ 
I missed them so 

I do not have wings, 
to take me to the sun 
They left me.......... 
One by one 
My heart no longer sings 
I must wait.......... 
Until winter is done, 
and spring has begun

A KING AND A QUEEN

Autumn leaves swept away
The snow fell steadily
The whispering trees, quiet so
A world of white
A castle,
wrapped in snow

Darkest night,
illuminated by streams of light
From Castle Heartstone
The Winter Queen...
Not alone

King of Fire,
filled the room
Light,
banished the gloom
The Winter Queen..
His desire

Such is the seasons
The nature of things
Precious times
Stars burning fire
Winter night
Burning bright

A King and a Queen
Such forces of nature,
wield such passion
Beauty of snow
The flames,
flicker so

This is Castle Heartstone
Love, in the deepest way
Even in winter snow
you can feel its' glow

These immense stone walls,
radiated warmth
From turrets to stairs,
you can feel within
The fire, flares

Winters' night
with a King
Warm and bright
Winters' day,
with a Queen
Such beautiful light,
where the snow lay

Autumn leaves
Gold and red flame,
swept away
A Queen,
to return...
on a winters' day

A King...
must let go...
A Queen
The ending of winter snow

Everything is Jolly

Everything is jolly
As we string the walls {with lights} 
And frolic in the snow
Everything is jolly
As we deck the halls {tonight}
With holly and mistletoe  (Chorus)

Oh, out in the snow
Along the sides of our little house
As the winter sun glowed
I put up the lights with my spouse
Then she said, "There he goes"
As I climbed to the top of the tree
To cut the mistletoe
She gathered it and sung along with me

(Chorus)

Oh, out in the snow
Along the sides of our little house
As the noon sun glowed
We trimmed the holly to make boughs
Then we took some old clothes
And put them on our frosty man
She laughed and began to throw
Balls of snow and around the yard she ran

As I gave chase
We fell with sweet expressions
In that place
Made two angel impressions
Then hand in hand 
We kissed like happy Eskimos
Then from this winter wonderland
We went inside to warm our toes

(Chorus)

Oh, under the mistletoe
Surrounded by holly in our little house
As the Christmas tree glowed
I sat at the table with my child and spouse
With a centerpiece, a rose
We thanked the Reason for the Season above
For food, shelter and clothes
Because better is a little than a lot without love

Dedicated to Chrissy

SPRING

I long for Spring
For Winter darkness
Has no place in my heart
With the bare trees
In all of its' starkness

I long for the first peepings
Of buds of green
To clothe a tree
A field
The flowers to see
in Spring

I long for the fresh sky
Of a Spring day
To see birds fly
To see birds play

I long for spring
Morning light
To fall
Upon forest flowers
Upon trees
So tall

I long for Spring
For Winter darkness
Has no place in my heart
With the bare trees
In all of its' starkness

WINTER GEESE

As the geese flew north
Their honking cries
Could be heard
In clear Autumn skies

Heading home
For a winter
At Heartstone

Filled with stories
From the south
A gentle wind
Pushed them ever northwards
Grey wings, beating with ease

On a starkly beautiful day
Forty two geese
Flew through winter sun
To Heartstone
Where they will stay

A CHRISTMAS AT HEARTSTONE

A special time
When the sun shone bright
In clear winter light
 
Robin Redbreasts
Darted back and forth
Singing gaily
The splash of red
Upon the snow
As they were being fed
 
In a magical world
Belonging to you and me
Christmas , came
In our hearts
The joy of giving
Beneath the tree
 
In a castle
To the right of the Winding Stair
A great tree grew
A mighty fir
 
In soft winter light
The candles  lit
Upon a tree
Faerie light
 
Golden feathers from Heartstone Eagles
Were put on the tree
Ribbons and lace from the Queens
Glowing berries from the Kings
 
A living tree
Filled with colour
Decorated with love
For you
For me
 
In a magical world
Under a tree
Christmas came
In soft winter light
Kings and Queens
Gave generously
 
Gifts of love
Colour
Of tranquillity
Passed on through
A kiss
A touch
Under a tree
 
Faeries flew
Trees, whispered
A castle, lit
The love felt, too
 
A single touch
Passing
You give your self
To everyone
They share all of you
As they share too
Forever lasting
 
This is a Heartstone Christmas
For what is given
Is love
Colour
Tranquillity
Under a tree
 
There is no greater gift
Then giving all of you
The light inside glowed
You wanted this,
and it showed
 
I want to share
A Heartstone Christmas
With you
Hold your hand
See the Northern Lights
Faeries too
 
For a Christmas at Heartstone
Is a time for love
A time to be free
Where the heart knows
Of everything
For it shows
In you

WHERE THE SNOW LAY

When Autumn became a Winters' day 
The snow flake falling 
That Winter Queen lay........... 
She heard the Heartstone calling 

Her sleigh, gold and light 
The reindeer, sure footed too 
They carried her on the frosty night 
The Whispering Trees changing hue 

The fresh fallen snow, 
covered the green so 
The chuckle of Winter Elves 
their feet, leaving tracks below 

Tiny glowing lights 
The Whispering Trees, 
guided the Queen 
Where the snow lay............ 
To the Castle gate, 
upon her sleigh 

The quiet of Winter......... 
The fireside glow 
The Castle ............. 
Covered in snow 
The only sound.......... 
A hoot of owl......... 
To be found 

The berries,so red............. 
On the holly bushes, 
by the Great Hall 
Dusted with snow........... 
Just like in winters 
from long ago 

The cold night........ 
Beginning to shorten 
The snow disappearing......... 
Early light 

Time to go 
The Winter Queen saw.......... 
How the frost began to thaw......... 
The ending of snow 

The last visit to the Great Hall......... 
Marvelling at the Tapestries glowing...... 
What they can say...... 
The Heartstone ,on the wall........ 
The hitched up sleigh 

For Spring is coming soon....... 
The dipping down........ 
Of a wintry moon 
The last frost afternoon 
Winters' crown
