At Tara In This Fateful Hour

At Tara In This Fateful Hour Treasury

This is my new treasury, titled "At Tara In This Fateful Hour", after Madeline L'Engle's poem, Patrick's Rune. It was inspired by ara133photography's stunning photo of the same name. I love the smoky blue and teal colors, and how the items have more than their color in common, which I think gives it depth.

I featured another of Ralph Nuara's pieces. I just love his work, and I always find something in his shop to inspire me when I'm creating treasuries.

The photographers took center stage in this one, however. In addition to ara133, I included Studiolyon's Sunset Palm 2 and metaleyelash's Cheerio Concerto No. 5; and Eyeful's Seed. They are all on my Christmas wish list!

Here is the full text of the poem, Patrick’s Rune by Madeleine L’Engle:

At Tara in this fateful hour
I place all Heaven with its power
And the sun with its brightness,
And the snow with its whiteness,
And the fire with all the strength it hath,
And the lightning with its rapid wrath,
And the winds with their swiftness along their path,
And the sea with its deepness,
And the rocks with their steepness,
And the earth with its starkness:
All these I place
By God’s almighty help and grace
Between myself and the powers of darkness

Please help me get this treasury to Etsy's front page! If you love it as much as I do, please visit it and give it some love and clicks! It is steadily moving up the list, but more clicks combined with more comments will send it to the top! Thanks so much!

Sorry not by Madeleine L'Engle this is from St Patrick and the poem is in at least two books in the early 1920's around Madeliene's birth. She does use it in her book bur did not write it. Please put your page right.
