The Lady of the Wood

The Lady of the Wood
9"x 12" mixed media on canvas panel


The Earth mourns,
autumn walking over
summers wounds

And She walks the Dark Periphery
holding hands with those
who dot its landscape

She murmurs quiet notes
of lilting rhymes
to draw down the Moon

The Lady of the Wood,
the poetic song
of Light amid the Dark

She is the candle gleam
of a heart aglow
with the wisdom of Trees

But the story she tells
at the Witching Hour
is for Initiates alone.
