Subject: RE: Folklore: What was behind virgins wearing laurels?
All around my hat I will wear the green willow
All around my hat forever and a day
And if anyone should ask me the reason I'm wearing it
It's all for my true love who's far far away.
I read somewhere that willow stood for faithfulness and constancy; perhaps it's a generic green leafy plant thing.
