Hush the Green Man Sleeps

Hush! The Green Man sleeps.
And dreams of warmer times.
When clothed in green
He will walk the leafy lanes
in search of his beloved.

Wandering, he comes across
all their old trysting places,
where in years gone past
he courted her in gay abandon.
All the while calling her name.
But she answers not.

She too is reborn this spring
as a maiden unused to loves ways.
so the dance must begin again
his love he must court all anew,
a love that at Beltains feast
will be fulfilled, and from their joining
the Earth bursts forth with life anew.
