Nut laden overhanging Beech Tree

The Beech trees almost olive green are laden with nuts and soon squirrels will
dance on thin branches & to gather their winter fayre.
A rare road marker
At the road side a rarity sits, it is almost a monument to old travellers, a
hand carved Milestone. The thoroughfares were littered with them once on main roads and byways, at junctions and forks in odd out of the way places; these sentinels stood marking the path and telling the distance.
A surprise came my way the other day. A call from a friend who said
'Can I use your poem "Moon Is" to decorate an entrance for the
Body and Soul Festival at Ballinlough Castle?'
Needless to say I was delighted with this to me novel way of viewing prose.
Ballinlough Castle is located on the N52 (Kells to Mullingar road) approximately 3 miles south of Clonmellon and 4 miles west of Athboy. www.ballinloughcastle.ie

The words are :-
Oval ivory white
A sensuous glow
Who sits in quiet
To believe so
She is an Earthy Woman
