We stir in the deep winter, see that the snowdrops are out. There are rumours of daffodils. We wish you gladness and deep dreaming as Winter begins to think about Spring

Tom says:

Thank you all for your continued comments and emails about this poem – I had no idea at all what was in store when I wrote it, only that the first line had been haunting me for months. Sometimes a Wild God has opened strange doors for me, and continues to have a life of its own. Something seems to have happened that is far beyond my understanding, and that is exactly as it should be. Poetry is a form of magic, and don’t let anyone tell you anything different. This word-spell will hopefully now reach more people than ever, and stray far beyond the internet.

We'll post these out to anywhere in the world!

It does sometimes take a few days to get these dispatched, especially at busy times of year. If you need your order for a birthday or similar, let us know and we'll do our very best to get it to you in time...
