There is lots of magic in these lines, it's sort of sad too. I can't bear a dead bird. Those pies are a community, a dynasty. I see them in a different light now with fairies in their hearts. How beautiful.

I really like this, Rhiannon. It's easy to forget that farmers are up and out in all weathers, at all times helping nature along. Your words are soft and powerful here, much like the lamplight.

I too love, 'birdsong ballads on barest branches'. It's something I've been noticing this week, the birds are celebrating day length. Peace is the greatest thing we can hope for and some sort of rebalancing in our economy. New year's eve truly...
