Mary Stella Edwards and Judith Ackland at Bucks Mills.
In 1924, Mary Stella Edwards wrote 'The Dancing Star for J.A.'
Suddenly in the quietest places,
When the first star swims up fair,
Threading the bare twigs' delicate laces,
I shall be there....
I will set your feet to follow the dancing
Feet of the beckoning star,
Tune your ears to notes entrancing,
Hollow and far.
They will call us out to the starlit spaces,
And brief as a bright dream done,
Swift from the ash-wood's quietest places,
We shall be gone.
She was 26 years old, and Judith was 31.
