lyrics

I went out to the hazelwood
Because a fire was in my head
And I cut and trimmed a hazel wand
And hooked a berry to a thread

And when white moths were on the wing
And moth-like stars were flickering out
I dropped a berry in a stream
And caught a little silver trout

And when I laid it on the floor
And went to blow the fire aflame
Something rustled on the floor
And someone called me by my name

It had become a glimmering girl
With apple blossoms in her hair
Who called me by name and ran
And faded through the brightening air

Now when I'm old from wandering
Through hollow lands and hilly lands
I will find out where she has gone
And kiss her lips and take her hands

And walk among tall dappled grass
And pluck till time and times are done
The silver apples of the moon
The golden apples of the sun.
