Wind and Window Kanzashi


Lovers, forget your love,
And list to the love of these,
She a window flower,
And he a winter breeze.

When the frosty window veil
Was melted down at noon,
And the cag├Ęd yellow bird
Hung over her in tune,


He marked her through the pane,
He could not help but mark,
And only passed her by,
To come again at dark.

He was a winter wind,
Concerned with ice and snow,
Dead weeds and unmated birds,
And little of love could know.


But he sighed upon the sill,
He gave the sash a shake,
As witness all within
Who lay that night awake.

Perchance he half prevailed
To win her for the flight
From the firelit looking-glass
And warm stove-window light.


But the flower leaned aside
And thought of naught to say,
And morning found the breeze
A hundred miles away.

~ Wind and Window Flower by Robert Frost~


Note: My first Kanzashi was made using paper straw, UHU glue and buttons (courtesy of lovely Farah - finally being able to use the beautiful brown button Farah!). I use no stitching whatsoever. Am yet to decide what to make of the beautiful kanzashi, but it would be a lovely brooch accessory to a hand-made bag.

  4. mizam/ norlie, kanzashi sebenarnya type of hair ornament, slalu buat daripada kain, cuma ni saje try buat guna kertas. U guys should try too! Mesti lawa buat guna kain!

    farah, dah lama dah aim nak guna buttons tu, tapi selalu sayang nak guna on cards, sbab taknak kasi org hehe. Bila buat kanzashi ni, it just.. fits. Pastu guna untuk diri sendiri pulak tu hehe. :)
