An Ancient Spirit by littlemissgiggles

Currently unavailable for purchase

They used to come
Sit in shade and laugh
With sandwiches and croquet balls

I laughed with the breeze
Sat alone in the sun
Watched on their company

A groan when the younger
Thought to climb
Hidden from all eyes they thought

If they had but known of mine
They mightve waited
For closed doors instead

And time moves forward
Such beings have moved on with it
Only the wild remains

I still sit in the sun
Waiting for time to bury me too.

_Uncle Malcolm’s seaside farm in Kiama, one of the most ancient trees on his estate, I love it there // Kiama, New South Wales, Australia // March 2007 _
