Needles and Pins
Needles and Pins….
When a Witch marries
...her Trouble Begins ~
Being a farm witch is no easy task ~
everyday there are many chores to do…
|"I'm gathering fallen twigs to make our brooms, |
then sweeping the dust & cobwebs from my farmhouse"
Making sure to talk to our trees ~
and listening to what they have to say in return…
|"…so I said…"she has GOT to be kidding, |
...going out in public with her petticoat showing like that…"
Gathering cobwebs from the barn
to use in our spinning, weaving & lacemaking…
|"left over right, under and over, right over left & back again ~"|
Foraging & Gathering for our food ~
|"…would you prefer toadstool tartlets or fungi fricassee for supper tonight dearie?…"|
and of course, it's no easy task keeping the home-fires burning
... to cook a stew or dye some linen & wool ~
|boil bubble toil & trouble...|
