In recognition and support of those brave people of Queensland, Australia, who have lost loved ones, homes and possessions in this terrible flood.
All profit from the sale of any of my works this month will go directly to aid those affected by the flood.

Spring is a mockery to it;
But in the winter it shall bear the snows
And rear aloft its stark and hopeless branches
As bravely as another.
