Nevergreen


Master Aaron faheud Swiftrunner           


Chorus: Let all green be grey as I have my day
Freezing lake and valley and shore
I will come to you and have my due
Leaving chill you remember evermore.

Verses: All summer you hunt in my forests.
Each spring you drink to my demise.
In autumn you sup after harvest
But now I sing across your sky!

As a child you smiled at my coming
Cheering as you went to play.
You have grown to fear my wild drumming
As I sing to you on my way

I can hear your brother ask for mercy
I can feel your father asking why
The heavens permit such a fury
As I cleanse across a bitter sky

I give you time to sit and ponder
Safe beside hearth and fire
Telling tales to the small ones
I hear your stories as I tire.

My sister is waking from her slumber
Soon I must bid my farewell
She will sing to her flowers
While I am banished by her spell

I am strong and full of fury
She is gentle with a smile
I am weary from my raging
So she will bless you for a while

Final Chorus: Let all green renew, I have had my due
Freezing lake and valley and shore
I will come again to your halls and then
Bring a chill you remember evermore.
