Song Description

The song describes the ancient gold of England's land. Its beauty and changing landscape, its rich dark soil. The woodland, mountains, caves and sea.

Story Behind the Song

A tribute to a beautiful ancient island, before environmental damage, combined with changing weather patterns in the future, potentially change its ancient, precious as gold, landscape.

Lyrics


Jade snaked mist
like viper?s kiss
bathes sweet earth of England's bliss

Jade snaked mist
like viper?s kiss
bathes sweet earth of England's bliss,
leaves liquid gold of ancient sands
to pour though castles, eager hands
Heirloom curtains bravely brought
down on progress, come to nought.

Matinee of tea-time song
sees the sea-salt rims upon
rocky coves by inland seas
as noisy as high summer?s bees.
Where gentle murmurs sweep past trees
a rush of grass ?gainst green stained knees.
Oh conjuror, of emerald land
blow winds of change away, yet fan
darkest, deepest soil on earth
nursing kernel at its birth,
upright shoots of acorn leaf
to march beside the wheat and sheaf.

Jade snaked mist
like viper?s kiss
bathes sweet earth of England's bliss

At maelstrom wild, of beck and fell
tell your peoples? stories well,
in course of torrent, Eden bound
in heart and hearth of souls quiet found.
Bend the farmer, make us weep
for all your treasures in the deep,
bowels and lakes of mountain kings
to whose feet our tribute bring.

Oh, newborn sweet and eager hands
feel the gold of ancient sands.

Jade snaked mist
like viper?s kiss
bathes sweet earth of England's bliss
