The Sylvan Doorway

from by Spiral Dance

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Step through the Sylvan Doorway into the realm of the Goddess and the Green Man, where the horned one walks the leaf-dappled pathways and bright Áine dances in the greenwood at Midsummer.
    Feel the spirit of the trees and hear the stones whisper in a land where the Fae will sing you into another time and space.
    Come closer to the fire as the shadows lengthen and the beauty of the night surrounds you; dance to the tunes of your ancestors, hear the legend of Odin’s Wild Hunt and dark tales of immortal desire. And then remember the wise ones who have gone before.
    Spiral Dance bids you welcome.

about

This song just ‘fell onto the page’ toward the end of the recording process so we knew it had to be included on this album!

lyrics

Green shadows bow to the rising sun
By the way the ancient track way runs
Cool mist dances in the morning light
And skips around the stones
He walks upon the forest path
The antlered one with oaken staff
Stories lie where his feet pass
Among the roots and rocks and bones
The legend whispers through the leaves
Visions in the sunlight weave
The waking of the day reveals
Where the magick lies
On the threshold between the worlds he stands
Guardian of these hidden lands
The greenwood’s call at his command
‘Tween water earth and sky
Spirits of the wild the ancient folk
Who dwell beneath the leafy cloak
Of Eucalypt Red Gum Elm and Oak
And dance the shadowed pathway
Hear the dreaming lines they sing
In this realm of the woodland king
You know the Green Man’s song will bring
You through the sylvan doorway
