This  amazing poem (poetic soundscape) was written by Neil William Holland, I quote his words from his description: "This poem I wrote is actually based on a real and very tall Lime tree that grows by the River Dovey. After writing and aiming for a lyrical and melodic straight-poem I explored my interest in Celticism which attracts me due to its powerful mystical and spiritual connotations. Fascinated by the combining of sound and words I experimented and began to pursue the poem rendered in a dream-like context that fits with the subject of the poem. I actually recorded a bird singing from the very tip of the lime tree before writing the poem and et voila, here is the collective result which I feel conveys what I set out to acheive conceptually, a dark but beguiling work that embraces the spirit. Hope you enjoy it too.......Neil"
