Subject: Lammas Night

About four or more years ago I heard a song i think sung by Heather Alexander called Lammas Night... it wasn't the Lammas Night that is on the Folksong Database, but it was about a woman and a wizard... can anyone help me?

From what I could find out it was written by Mercedes Lackey (sci fi writer) and is availbe for sale Click here Scroll about half way down the page. She also has a book by the same title.

Sorcha is absolutely right; I recognized the title and the description.
If you read the lyrics you will find it has a chilling ending; it ends with a question. Reading the short story that preceded (or "co-ceded", I'm not sure which) it would give you little additional information; the lyrics tell it all!

I was in a band for a while that did an original song called Lammas Night loosely based on the Burns poem...careful it is a bit racy! ;0

Lammas Night

The grain was reaped, the bins were full
The country danced, I with the Harvest Queen
She took my hand and led me through the night
Among the rigs of barleycorn

Chorus:
'Neath the rigs of barleycorn
Come, my havrest queen, and lay with me once more
And let me taste the honey of your love
Among the rigs of barleycorn

She came to me on Lammas Night
I lay with her and nested in her down
The moon warm and full caressed her swollen breats
Among the rigs of barleycorn
Chorus...

The newly-turned earth became our summer bed
My heart cried deeply for this night to never end
As she took me down within her rounded thighs
Among the rigs of barleycorn
Chorus...

um, BTW, it may be that Mercedes Lackey wrote a book entitled Lammas Night, but the most famous sci-fi/fantasy novel of that title is written by Katharine Kurtz; based on the true story of some English witches who endangered their own lives by working magic to stop Hitler from invading England during Wolrd War 2...
