Artist's Description

Oh Come my spirits of the tree
And be a vision unto me
Show yourselves, I want to know
Are you friend, or are you foe.

I caught a glimpse I’m sure I did
When I was young, oh just a kid
Of your kind dancing in the wood
Are you bad or are you good.

If I should chance upon your face
Will it shine and be full of grace
If not, will it be wizened and old
With sombre lips and eyes blue cold

I’ve seen your image within the bark
The growth of time has left its mark
The branches are your arms held high
Gently swaying beneath the sky

My search is far my travels wide
Each time I’m near you quickly hide
Will you show yourselves to me
Or elusive ever be

I know, I know now where you are
Although I’ve searched both near and far
Within my heart you will appear
And forever I will hold you dear

Acrylics on Canvas

When framing this painting I wanted to make it look as natural as possible so we went to the woods and found some branches (we didn’t cut them they were picked from the ground) and my partner Ian who is a carpenter did a wonderful job of making a frame from the branches.
