Song of the Day
August 01, 2018
Feel me sleep beneath your feet
While the year is waning
And all about you the bare fingers plead
And reach towards the sky
A crown of thorns about my head
When the dark is rising
And from the shadows walks a God, a seed
A hope for brand new life

Can you hear the spirits of the earth, can you?
Can you hear the spirits of the earth, can you?
Can you hear the spirits of the earth?
Can you hear them call, can you hear them sing?

Lughnasadh! Is the life and the death of the Corn King
Life and rebirth of the Corn King!
Lughnasadh! Is the life and the death of the Corn King
Life and rebirth of the Corn King!

I turn my green face to the sun
As the year is waxing
And all about animals call my name
In forest and in sky
My horns of velvet reflect the moon
Silver wheel of my lady
She comes towards me as the May reveals
Her white and virgin skin

I turn my gold face to the sun
As the year is waning
The time has come now for my life to end
As metal rubs on stone
She comes towards me across the fields
Chariot's wheels a-blazing
Her hair on fire, cut me crush me, bake me
Eat me, I am yours
