A Folk Song from the land of Ge

Show Me the Green Lane

And Mimne the Seer and where and when do you sleep?
A word I’ve asked all the birds of the air-borne leap
To show me the green lane that leads to your feet.
For your name in their sky lyric I hear my heart’s cleat.

Show me the green lane that leads to her feet
For her name in their sky lyric I hear so sweet.

And Mimne the Fair is it night felt tears that flow?
I’ve asked all the flowers to seek down below,
For the daisy and cowslip my hopes keep
In their petals hovering I see your face deep.

Show me the green lane that leads to her feet
For her name in their sky lyric I hear so sweet.

And Mimne the Sage do your bitterly words make a sound?
I’ve asked all the seeing winds to whistle me round,
To bring to my shelter your voice, that me greet,
Singing my path to the place where we shall meet.

Show me the green lane that leads to her feet
For her name in their sky lyric I hear so sweet.
For I will not rest until at the last we shall meet.

Show me the green lane that leads to her feet
For her name in their sky lyric I hear so sweet.
For I will not rest until at the last we shall meet.

(a sung version will be posted shortly)
