Creeping Toad works with groups to find ways of celebrating the places where people live, work and play
This Blade of a Beak
New post on the Toadblog in praise of ravens…
A blade of a beak
To slice flesh from bone
And shave hair from skin,
To free from blood from body
And hope from hearts.
A bright, black bead of an eye
To see now, and then, and maybe.

The Wonders of the Peak
Time gently and untidily shelves
The memory of
Barrows and tunnels,
Treasures and tollroads,
Until all that is left
Are the bones and bits,
We sift from the debris of centuries,
The ghosts of facts,
And the stories we tell.
