Ode To My Changing Leaves

Image

(sung to the tune of Greensleeves)

I wander far, I wander wide
Looking for companionship
I wear my leaves so full of pride
To attract my future love

chorus:
Green leaves were my pride and joy
Green leaves were my delight
Green leaves were my beauty badge
But they turned on me and gave me fright.

My leaves are now yellow and red and gold
Oh why did my earth mother turn them so,
you broke my heart and the Entwives fled
I long for my old green leaves.

chorus

I have been tending the forests green
To keep them pure whatere you wish
I have fought for the beautiful Queen
To impress her with my strength.

chorus

If nature intends to leave me thus
I shall adapt and deal with it
And even so, I still remain
A seeker of my true love.

chorus

Winter comes, I feel it now
green leaves, now farewell, adieu,
To Earth I pray to prosper thee,
For I am still thy lover true,
Come once again and love me.

chorus (slowly fading….)
