  • Wild Folk Ramblings

    '...weather played ball and ravens danced in the air. Ponies and chough, hut circles and burial chambers. One step at a time.' Jackie Morris In February Jackie Morris and Tamsin Abbott walked with Clare Balding at St David's Head, a landscape Jackie is incredibly familiar with but only recently reunited with following her knee operation. They discuss this longed for reconnection to landscape and of course their collaboration, Wild Folk. If you missed tuning in, the programme is still currently available via BBC iPlayer...

  • Scarlet Elf-Cap

    Last we passed we spied scarlet elf-caps in this tidy copse amongst the ferns of winter they bloomed blood bright, a glade cut splinter sprouting neat from decaying elder limbs uniting acorn cups and Snow White's apple skins those spellbound peelings freckling the forest floor winking from the understory, perhaps numbering a score blooming out from the brash crisp as the woodpecker's cry secrets of Burgundy Chapel ruins so easy to wander by Scarlet Elf-Cap by Christopher Jelley of Seven Fables The ruins of Burgundy Chapel can be found near Minehead by following the wooded coast path, do seek them out if you are visiting Exmoor.

  • Who spun the blush into the morning sky?

    Who spun the blush into the morning sky Who taught the wren to both sing and fly Who tailored the suit for lord magpie It was I said the moon, coy and shy It was I said the moon, coy and shy Whose idea was it for the leaves to fall The river to spate, the summer to stall The teasels to snatch like the ravens call It was I said the moon overlooking us all It was I said the moon overlooking us all Who waits for the heron at the skimming pool Who schools the bee in the golden rules Who teaches the hare to box and duel It is I said the moon wise and cool It is I said the moon wise and cool Who convinced the owl to sing out the dusk The fox to hunt in bracken of rust The badger to truffle shrewd and robust It was I said the moon with true wanderlust It was I said the moon with true wanderlust And if the grounds swell and the airs boil asunder I shall pale from my throne at all those beauties squandered But whether I gibbous, wane, wax or wander I shall always be above spilling my wonder 'Badger Holds the Moon Aloft' Detail from original watercolour with gold leaf by Jackie Morris £4,750 Image 48.5x 29 cm Frame 63 x 43.5cm - free shipping within the UK & overseas Please do enquire info@sevenfables.co.uk 'Said the Moon' a poem by Christopher Jelley of Seven Fables Originally published in a Seven Fables newsletter February 2024 - subscribe here!
