The Green Man


They buried it deep inside.
The seed of the beginning.
Filled tubes with nutrients
and chanted the quickening.
Patiently they waited
for their greatest creation.
But flesh cannot survive
without a heart
and acorns live
for earth and sky.


Lois took the final lines to create the haunting ‘The Knight and The Seed’.
