A Tale Of The Uncontrollable And Uncontrolled Ethel Eldritch.





Heeding only the wild wind's call, 




this way and that she ran.




'Til silently the dark woods enfolded all around.




 Caught in The Governessa's grasp, this little one.
 Led by icy hand, down and down...




There, deep under the Willow and darkly cocooned, the Ghastly one has her.
"Dear Ethel Eldritch, to where will you run?"

Oh dear! She is so so delicate.
I fancy one day to keep one of these lovely creatures in a breast pocket for long adventures.

Melanie, dearest, does poor Ethel have hope of deliverance from her dark and dangerous place? Do any of us? Do I sniff a personal subtext?

Thank you at the attic and Georgina!

Oh Nicomi, these tiny ones do love their wanderings!!!

;) I'm sure there's subtext in them all somewhere... I'll leave you wondering about her fate!

Dearest (fantastic & darling & brave) Ethel Eldritch ~ I've hung all of my best thoughts & wishes out for you on a long branch where hummingbirds rest their wings and wait for you to join them if ever you do escape - & how I hope you will - and soon! XO & love!

Dear Shayna, I've whispered your wishes down the branches of the willow and I'm sure you've lifted our little captive's spirits ;) XXX

She is so adorable and look at her little hooves. Oh dear what will she do...maybe a swift kick to the Ghastly one with those little hooves may set her free.
