Goodnight FolkEast 2014

A half moon hung low in the sky over the fields of Eastfolk tonight as, with a heavy heart, I left my lover and returned home.

For three days and nights she had teased me, thrilled me, enthralled and entertained me. She shared with me her finest food, introduced me to her precious friends. We sang, we ate, we drank, we laughed… oh how we laughed.

But leave her I must. And though that saddens me, I leave with precious memories and new found friends. She is a zephyr which I and other like minded souls must care for and nurture. For she is a precious thing.

I hope next harvest tide that she will return, and that once again we can laugh and sing and remember what it is to be alive, not just living.
