The Wind That Shakes The Barley 

I sat within the valley green, I sat me with my true love
My sad heart it was torn between, the old love and the new love
The old for her, the new that made me think on Ireland dearly
While soft the wind blew down the glen and shook the golden barley

‘Twas hard for me those words to frame to break the ties that bound us
But harder still to bear the shame of foreign chains around us
And so I said, “The mountain glen I shall seek at morning early
And join the brave united men” while soft winds shake the barley

I kissed away my true love’s tears, my fond arms round her flinging
When a foeman’s shot burst on our ears from out the wildwood ringing
A bullet pierced my true love’s side in life’s young spring so early
There she died upon my breast while soft winds shook the barley

And blood for blood without remorse I came to Oulart Hollow
And laid my true love’s clay cold corpse where I full soon must follow
And round her grave I wander drear, noon, night and morning early
With breaking heart when e'er I hear the wind that shakes the barley

Written by Robert Dwyer Joyce (1836–1883)

The light of morning’s grace was subdued and no longer found in her hair, but her gaze still marveled in its auric hue. Of sun-kissed flesh she was, delicately adorned in fabrics of white and gold. Her perfume was of spring, and the warmth of summer was found in her eyes and smile.

Some artists manage to capture your characters’ souls. And then there’s @istehlurvz, who somehow never fails to deliver far more than you even dream of.

(Follow her, commission her. Drown in her art like I do.)

With @thebookofireine, because she’s the only one who can stand Augustiniel. And the only one he can stand, in turn.

I believe Laika's next film is going to be an adaptation of Wildwood––a novel by Colin Meloy. Makes sense since most of Laika's films are based off of stories––with the exception of Kubo, as it's based off of Japanese mythology and folklore.

I’ve heard the same thing, but there is no conformation just yet! (Also I believe ParaNorman is a wholly original idea.) However… Steven Wong Jr., the behind the scenes photographer for Kubo, posted this on Instagram!

His description: “presenting the very first studio gift for the crew of LAIKA’s next #stopmotion feature, ‘Film 5’ (working title), the follow-up to the Oscar-nominated “#Kubo and the Two Strings’!!”

Just the forest imagery makes me think it could really be Wildwood! We’ll have to wait and see…
