Thread Name: Req: WormWood Carol / Worthywood Carol
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: WormWood Carol
This web page about Sicily says that the Nebrodi pine is known in local dialect as "l'alburo cruci cruci," the criss-cross tree. Do you suppose your carol could be a translation from Italian?

If so, one could hope for a better translation. After all, "to die for we" is hardly exemplary grammar!
