The Ivy – With Precious Foreword

Darling your and I should get together and write a Most Beloved Book of little things –  You are  so good at expressing yourself

How beautiful ! 

I have been under the ivy many times but since you were born I have never been alone there.

Thank You

Love

Mom

The Ivy 

 

It wouldn’t take me long

To tell you how to find it

To tell you where we’ll meet

This little girl inside me

Is retreating to her favorite place

Go into the garden, go under the ivy

Under the leaves, away from the party

Go right to the rose

Go right to the white rose

I sit here in the thunder

The green on the gray

I feel it all around me

And it’s not easy for me

To give away a secret

It’s not safe

To go into the garden, go under the ivy

Under the leaves, away from the party

Go right to the rose

Go right to the white rose

Go into the garden, go under the ivy

Go under the leaves with me

Go right to the rose

Go right to the white rose

I’ll be waiting for you

It wouldn’t take me long

To tell you how to find it

 

~Charlotte ‘08

About the Author

From Review: "Charlotte Von Woffle Greer is an artist in the truest sense of the word. Tormented, embattled, strong, fearless and fearful. Curious, and full of wonder yet jaded and defeated at times. An artist shares what they feel. A true and brave artist shares what they feel completely as Charlotte does, in these pages." -Erik Johnson
