The Boy With the Moon & Star on his Head

A gardener`s daughter stopped me on my way on the day I was to wed
It is you who I wish to share my body with she said
We`ll find a dry place under the sky with a flower for a bed
And for my joy I will give you a boy with the moon and star on his head.
Her silver hair flowed in the air laying waves across the sun
Her hands were like the white sands, and her eyes had diamonds on.
We left the road and headed up to the top of the Whisper wood
And we walked 'till we came to where the holy magnolia stood.
And there we laid cool in the shade singing songs and making love...
With naked earth beneath us and the universe above.
The time was late my wedding wouldn`t wait I was sad but I had to go,
So while she was asleep I kissed her cheek for cheerio.
The wedding took place and people came from many miles around
There was plenty merriment, cider and wine abound
But out of all that I recall I remember the girl I met
`Cause she had given me something that my heart could not forget.
A year had passed and everything was just as it was a year before...
Until the gift that someone left, a basket by my door.
And in there lay the fairest little baby crying to be fed.
I got down on my knees and kissed the moon and star on his head.
As years went by the boy grew high and the village looked on in awe
They`d never seen anything like the boy with the moon and star before.
And people would ride far and wide just to seek the word he spread
I`ll tell you everything I`ve learned and Love is all....he said.

Greenwood Guardian

Rise as the sun: antlered-
bearded with greenery- the leaf-vein pulsing
in your throat. Budded all over with small flame,
and motley with birds in your hair and arms.

Rise and put on your foliage!

Come, follow, follow me
You, fairy elves that be.
Which circle in the green
come follow Maeve your queen.
Hand in hand let's dance around
for this place is fairye ground.
