Now the Green Blade Riseth

Next >>> 

Now the green blade riseth
From the buried grain
Wheat that in the dark Earth
Many days has lain
Love lives again
That with the dead has been
Love is come again
Like wheat that springeth green

Now the spirit stirreth
At the stricken root
From the rotted tree stump
Springs a living shoot
Mold, muck and clay
Bring forth the green of May
Love is come again
Like wheat that springeth green

In the Earth they laid them
In a barren place
Witches from the burning
Nameless and erased
Rising again
Their ashes feed the grain
We are come again
Like wheat that springeth green

Now the wasteland bloometh
From the hidden bud
In the rocky desert
Rivers brim and flood
Dry bones will sing
The quickening of spring
Love is come again
Like wheat that springeth green
