King Winter

~ Wildie Thayer

The Autumn wailed, " I felt his breath." The birds departed, frightened.

The heavens frowned, and all the earth
In chilling terror whitened.

The flowers clasped his frozen hands,
And bended low to greet him ;

The leaves, all clad In colors gay,
Then sallied forth to meet him.

King Winter came, but gave the earth

A coldly warm protection ; Till Spring commanded, " Rise, depart;

I am the resurrection."

Advent, Week Two

"The second light of Advent is the light of plants - Plants that reach up to the sun and in the breezes dance."
This week we added some living and non-living plant material to our table... we also lightened up on our stones, bones and minerals but left some out so we have a bit of each kingdom on our table by the fourth week.

Needle Felted Mitten Ornaments...
