The Green Man

Post by James Parton » Sat Nov 20, 2010 10:39 am

"The Greenman" by Martin Donnelly

The Easter Sun, it cuts my eyes
Open to the wind and rain
All around the earth breathes deep
I come alive again
I am the Green Man of the woods
The wounded and the broken land
I am the fire in the Red Stag's eye
The touch of a lover's hand
Of a lover's hand

Oh let me speak, lend me your tongue
To sing the trees and streams
Sing the dark blood of the hills
The moon on goose's wings
I am the Green Man of the woods
The wounded and the broken land
I am the fire in the Red Stag's eye
The touch of a lover's hand
Of a lover's hand...

Oh if you meet me in the fields
Don't ye be alarmed
I come to bring you joy
I'll do you no harm
Let us dance beneath the stars
The pale moon in our eyes
And celebrate the mysterious
That keeps us all alive
Keeps us all alive

I am the Green Man of the woods
The thistle and the corn
The spark in every creature's heart
The dancer in the storm

I am the Green Man of the Woods
The thistle and the corn
The spark in every creature's heart
The dancer in the storm
The dancer in the storm...

Jenny,

So would I!

But I guess the closest ENTS has is Dale Luthringer and me. We always look like " green men " at least...
