Sleepy Rosie Songs For Spring Equinox/Easter? (20) Lyr Add: LULLABY OF SPRING (Donovan) 24 Feb 09


Sure :-)
I've had a check of both the Spring Equinox and Easter threads. I suppose I was hoping to head away from specifically Christian Easter themes in favour of more agricultural, seasonal and folkloric ones.

I did find this Donovan song recommended by ClairBear on another thread:

Lullaby of Spring
Donovan

Rain has showered far her drip
Splash and trickle running,
Plant has flowered in the sand
Shell and pebble sunning.

So begins another spring,
Green leaves and of berries,
Chiff-chaff eggs are painted by
Mother bird eating cherries.

In the misty tangled sky
Fast a wind is blowing,
In the new-born rabbit's heart
River life is flowing.

So begins another spring,
Green leaves and of berries,
Chiff-chaff eggs are painted by
Mother bird eating cherries.

>From the dark and wetted soil,
Petals are unfolding.
>From the stony village kirk,
Easter bells of old ring.

So begins another spring,
Green leaves and of berries,
Chiff-chaff eggs are painted by
Mother bird eating cherries.

Rain has showered far her drip
Splash and trickle running,
Plant has flowered in the sand
Shell and pebble sunning.

So begins another spring,
Green leaves and of berries,
Chiff-chaff eggs are painted by
Mother bird eating cherries.
