To wear rugged shoes was quite a blessing,
for barefoot...Read More

They Healed A Dying Oak

Once upon an autumn eve,
faeries danced among the leaves
of a great old oak, deep in the woods,

The yew and the oak were talking today
How many years have they stood this way
They have seen it all they went on to say

all are free to fall.

I will reach my roots deep
into the solid mass of Earth,
down into the sweet concrete of life.
Beside a blue rippling stream I will rest
and birds will make their nest in my branches.
