"Nonesuch" Lyrics!

"Nonesuch"

Oh, She will bring the buds in the spring
and dance among the flowers.
In summer's heat Her kisses are sweet,
She sings in leafy bowers.
She cuts the cane and gathers the grain,
when fruits of fall surround Her.
Her bones grow old in wintery cold,
She draws Her cloak around Her.

--Glenn Turner and Hope Athearn, 1969

I am rather disappointed that the lyrics were written in 1969, but I still love them!

Well for some that is still a lifetime away. New ballads are fun too!

Viv--Heh...I had thought the lyrics dated from the 1500's, just like the music was, so I was very startled to see they were written in 1969. (g) The music is a Playford dance tune.

The melody is supposedly considered a polka, which just makes me cringe, though I'm also interested to see how that would work. It's written in 2/4.
