Onto my raft of plaits
I shall step,
with dreams of Alsation-men.
This short poem dates from the last quarter of 2013 when I did indeed have a dream about a raft of plaits and Alsation-men. Perhaps it was a subconscious mash-up of my plaited rag rug (A craft project that’s still incomplete!) and the beautiful dogs I see on my almost daily walks in a local wood.
