Stubborn Sod February My Spear Tree

My Spear Tree

I hint at an Anglo-Saxon riddle poem in this because I don’t name the tree. There is more on trees in the middle book “The Headpoke and Firewedding”. I will let the link reveal all:

I loved climbing trees. There’s this kind of pull towards clambering as high as you can to see as far as you can. I often use the term “barkskin” as I read somewhere that a trees bark is like our own skin. I read Lyall Watson’s “Supernature” as a teenager. I found it inspirational but also doubted it.
