The trunks of Beeches are smooth and grey,
Like tall straight pillars of stone
In great Cathedrals where people pray;
Yet from tiny things they’ve grown.
About their roots is the moss; and wide
Their branches spread, and high;
It seems to us, on the earth who bide,
That their heads are in the sky.
And when Spring is here,
and their leaves appear,
With a silky fringe on each,
Nothing is seen so new and green
As the new young green of Beech.
O the great grey Beech is young, is young,
When, dangling soft and small,
Round balls of bloom from its twigs are hung,
And the sun shines over all.
Today I am taking you to the world of imagination. Somewhere where you can close the door of reality behind you.
I am haapy to introduce you to the Beech Fairy. The result of sleepless night, elaborate and precisional work.
I have spent long hours to make it look the way I want it to be.
Every tiny bit is a one punch of hammer and there is no shortcut to create this beauty.
He is playful and sits on a tree branch.
He measures 2" including the bail.
You choose length. Otherwise it is 18".
I offer just a couple of these and they will ship within 5 days. I am sorry to these of you that I won't be able to make happy as I have limited time ❤️
