The Green Man

The Green Man came to me/ one morning in the spring

When the dew lay on the fields,/ and my heart was full of longing

His eyes were green and gold,/ like sunlight on the leaves

Oh, more beautiful than any,/ he seemed that morning to me

He planted love in me,/ as I lay against the grass

And the earth around me sang/ of the ripening of summer

My arms like branches grew/ and roots sprang from my feet

Oh, I was green with life?s own yearning,/ with the joy he grew in me

But that was long ago,/ when I was soft and new

When the quickening of spring/ still rose in me like wonder

Many years have passed,/ and I know now autumn?s chill

Yet, I hear the green voice singing./ He grows within me still.
