The Bluebell Wood~ Poem and Story

Once upon a time within a wood

Unfolding her wings a Fairy Girl stood

She flew and she sang with the hum of the Bee

Sprinkling her dust to create a blue seaRufford Park

Each flower she tended with love and with care

Sharing their nectar she lived happily there

Blackbird

The blackbird he sang his delight in his Song

The wood their home it was where both belonged

Bluebell Wood ~ Rufford

She’d fly high and low touching each bell

And each one would open under her spell

Bluebell Wood 5

Soon there were thousands, they stretched out for miles

Each one touched by the Fairy with smiles.

Bluebell Wood 2

Now one day a woman alone and forlorn

Walked in the wood all weary and worn

She’d strayed from the path so deep was her thought

Blinded by tears of life’s worries she was caught

Bluebell Path

She rested her back by the trunk of a tree

Closing her eyes, that woman was me

She came to the wood to speak to a tree

The ‘Old One’ would listen, Silence being the key

Bluebell trail

His branches would creak, his bark would feel warm

The ‘Old One’ poured love, and the woman felt calm

The Fairy would sit up high in his branch

Watching the exchange and the woman’s downward glance.

The Standing One in the Bluebell wood

She’d fly by her shoulder and tickle her hair

With each breath the woman discarded her cares

She stood up, breathed deep, hugging her tree

Her thoughts now clear, her mind filled with glee

Bluebells

She turned giving thanks and blinked in surprise

Gasping out loud as the sight met her eyes

Her smile now broad, her heart full of love

The Woman discovers the Bluebell Wood..

Bluebell edge of the wood

And so she returns at May time each year

Feeding the birds, she no longer sheds tears

The Fairies still fly and dance in the tree

And once in a while they visit with me

Feeding the Birds

The moral of this tale is to open your heart

Let Nature heal you, you are one from the start

Discover your breath and talk to the trees

Seek out the Silence; your mind holds the keys

Bluebell wood 6

So let go of sorrow, worry and strive

Let Nature in for she’s part of your life

And if you should wander and stray off track

Remember that LOVE will lead you straight back..

        The tiler is seriously behind schedule so I got a day off today – hopefully he’ll be round tomorrow!!! 🙂

        If he isn’t here by Wednesday then he’ll be out of luck Thursday as it is my shopping day!!! 😦

        There’s still the extractor fan and shower to fit, so that could be next week before that happens.

        It was supposed to take a week and already we’re into week two… 😦

        I had to take sleeping pills so it is 6.43pm and I’m just about dozing off at the keyboard! 🙂

    Sue, dear, I can’t hold myself back in appreciating your wonderful thoughts and expressions. This lovely poem-story, beautifully expressing, along with pictures, the need to discover oneself by talking to Nature, seeking the Silence and allowing Nature to play its part in our lives is simply fantastic!. What a tragedy we are acting against Nature these days and getting punished? A great piece with deep philosophy.
    Blessings and Love.

          One thing I am pleased my parents taught me was that there is no such word as ‘Can’t’.. So I have always tried my hand at most things.. And so long as we enjoy our creations be it writing or poetry, painting or just being a mum… each of us will always find something we are good at.. We just have to try our best.. and enjoy all we do… 🙂

    It did open my heart and paved the way for happiness and contentment.Life is so beautiful and so is the life-giving nature and your poetic inspirations !
