December garlands

in December

~

we gather pine cones

wreaths of lion’s paw

hawthorn, cedar boughs

and juniper

~

we walk the wild ways

pruners and scissors

baskets and stout cord

to bind bunches of

branches

~

balsam and holly

berries and garlands

of evergreen, red

rosehips and acorns,

gilded, needles and

thorns

  1. This post brings back wonderful memories of gathering materials to make wreaths and garlands years ago. In recent years, I’ve just bought wreaths–but the poem makes me want to go out and gather some pine cones and other materials to make a wreath from scratch.

    • Hi Sheryl. I also buy a wreath each year. But I also gather greens to put around the house. Nothing smells so good! Jane
