Dryad Winter (for Nimuea)

Dryad Winter

The leaves have all gone now
and love has died
right alongside the spirit of a lakeland fell
Now there he stands
frozen arms and frozen hands
Countryside
farms and fields
around him spread
but still he stands gaunt and grey
almost dead
His skin is wrinkled and bleaached by
the sun:
But written upon it by an ancient sage
is the wisdom of ages
Page after page after page



Regards the Bear

Now that I know what a Dryad is (not a word that I've come across in many years)...... very evocative!

A very lovely poem...but I was slightly distracted by the wiggling bear avatar!

I'm reading a book about Druids, and this put me in the right mood to read more.

Hi BG, I'm glad you liked it. I wrote it nearly 20 years ago. I had just been to a Druid wedding, friends of mine got married and the ceremony was held on a mountainside in North Wales, aptly the area is kown as Rowen tree mountain.
The Bride and Groom spent thier wedding night in a tepee made of branches ferns and leaves. Thier union was blessed with copious goblets of cider.


Regards the Bear

What a lovely poem Bear - Thank you. You certainly have a talent for painting pictures with words.

I have only been to one Druid wedding, and that a long time ago, but I remember that the ceremony was very moving.

Nimuea, praise from you is praise indeed, thank you for your kind words.

I will dig out some more of my ancient ramblings

Very Best regards, the Bear :)
