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.

British Library snake weights feature in Flat Earth Unroofed – a tale of mind lore,

I was inspired by seeing them on my study days there on Wednesdays. Some of the book was conceived in the coffee rooms. Here is the extract from page 171:

The other fragments are musings about some of Hudor’s companions. He believed Skeous to be the snake of the palimpsest. Some ancient libraries would have book snakes which held the book open for the reader, or marked the place where the reader was when the book was closed. The remnant of the idea is in the British Library today with snake weights.

Skeous had also spoken of the mosaic snakes in the great libraries. Each library was filled with mosaics. Hidden within them were deadly snakes that looked like part of the mosaic. They were there to guard the treasures.
