Sole & Land

These feet remember things of long ago

Of where I walked fast and slow

Of roads, paths and ways

Walking for days and days

In shoes much too small

Knees grazed from many a fall

Every maiden, mother and crone

How many times did they groan?

Over and over we did it again

Bending to the will of men

But I am last

My line has past

I will drink this poison down

And shit and piss it in every town

Spreading this darkness around

Into the earth with an old grey sound

Burying this filth into the dirt

Full of pain, aching and hurt

I’ve taken enough of poison and pain

Feeling Witch’s moon wane

As the darkness comes again and again

But looking out on this night like dawn

In the North is where I’m reborn

Here with air to flow

Space to roots grow

Only Time does know

Where Peace does go

Kiss the earth while walking life’s journey…

They come this way
The Elves of yesterday
Skin like ice
Eyes of fire
Breath of wind
Climbing higher
Out of the blue
They come two by two

They shine in the night
To the star light
For the night of day
Will not cast them a way

Through the woods they come
From the winter glades
They come for the sun maid
Who sits by the fire
Awaiting her pyre

The villagers come
One by one calling her out
For it is her dwelling they fear
With magik so near

Two by two they come
The Elves of lore
They come wanting no more
Than the witch by the fire
Awaiting her pyre

The villagers run
In fear of the Elven Sun
To the door they come
Calling the one

She puts out the fire
And steam fills the sky
Villagers wondering if all will die
She comes to the door
Wondering what’s in store

The Elves in pairs
One climbs the stairs
And greets her with fair praise
And to the skys raise
Taking her broom and finest piece
Out to the world in a woolen fleece

The Elven journey is far
Away from the village by light of star
Two by two with the Witch ahead
Kissing the earth as they tread
