An Old Oak to a Young Year

Crown of stars,
Cloak of gold -
Older than your
Oldest old -
Stand to watch
The ages fly...
Clouds across

And hear the sigh
Of a life-age
Passing by.

All alone,
In a world of human faces,
Brick and pavement,
Airs and graces.
All alone
Without a tree
Or wild thing
To comfort me.

A rogue March wind plays havoc
On neatly braided hair,
And brings a smell of greening
To clean the lifeless air.
Reclusive little pussy toes
Peep from their fairy ring,
And strident herald starlings
Declare the coming spring.

But, of course, I must be a visionary. Whatever ideas I have must immediately be expanded into some big, grandiose dream. So, I decided that it would be really amazing if other artsy souls could contribute, and the blog could turn into some sort of place where artists could just hang out and be inspired. This idea is still very much in its infancy, but I'm pretty sure that it'…
