April's Mythical/Mystical creature poem (public)
I was originally going to just change the settings on the post where I revealed the monthly poem early to patrons. Then when I had and went to hit the share button it still ended up saying patrons only. So I will do it this way instead.

I'm not sure what's going on, but currently it looks like I am actually below the amount to keep a poem coming every month in addition to the work on Selkies' Skins 2. Considering it's April Fool's Day though I will check back later. I'll get the poem recorded and uploaded to Youtube hopefully later today.

It also looks like I have a backlog of bookmark art to get up and/or send out. I'm not sure how I managed to overlook those.

[edit] I've revamped the goal levels a little bit and moved some around. More poems have been added in and the minimum for the first two poems has been lowered. I'm still up for requests.[/edit]

They That Sow

Stretching, pulling, ever mulling

Do you know who does the sowing?

They bring forth the vivid green

Dancing beneath spring wind’s blowing.

I wonder if you’ve ever seen

Those with the eyes that gleam

In the day and in the night

Dancing from the flowing stream?

Have you heard the pipes that play

By the gloaming and the day

In the woods deep and dark

Dressing April for the Blessed May?

They run now with the gilded hart

That archer ne’er hath yet marked

With hoods of green like the spring

And wings swift as the meadowlark.

Stretching, pulling, ever mulling

Do you know who does the sowing?

They bring forth the vivid green

Of grass and tree quietly growing.
