Sure is a nice cool day here in the park, amongst the sylvan glades and flower beds. We've got a tented tavern set up with a portable stage and a portable swiiming pool; nice cool breeze is blowing through and if you look really closely, you might see the PeterDenizenT Greenman as he waltzes about smiling at each little flower and categorising each type of topsoil, and tracks the path of each different little critter. Don't mind if he trails a bit of leaves or other debris, or that he lollygags...it's that kind of day for us all...just take it slow and easy, sit back in the grass, relax, take a long, cool sip, and hum a little tune....ah.....summertime and the living is easy....

Welcome, welcome, welcome to the Greenman Mudcat Tavern...

I'll be waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay over here trying to learn a new tune called "Angel Child". Gotta keep the others away from my youthful drivelings AND my guitar away from flying rotten vegetables. Living is EASY? I'm hyped up on music, I get to meet Mrrzy tomorrow, and school starts up again next week. All I can say is Summertime, glad it's almost over! Sweating like a pig just ain't my thing...

Oh right, where was I?

Tonight, this is your life...angel child of mine...

Awright, awright, Spaw! Ooooooooommmmmmm....takes a deep breath in and leetttttsssss it oout sllllooooowwwwwlllyyy here ya go, darlin' since you're going to hell in a handbasket of a van, anyway, I guess you deserve something a little stronger, listen up, now...go back behind the porta-swimming pool, down that dirt path, up the little hill, until you come to a fork, take the left trail heading down towards the bog, there's a miasma of smoky, oily crap in the air, stinks, too, keep on that path until you see a red pair of knickers tied 8 feet up in a sycamore tree on your south side, go under that very tree, and part the lilac bushes on yer right and you will see a narrow, slatted swinging bridge which goes over the bog

Now, if you've made it that far, DON't go over the bridge!! That's where the Flushing Gators really are, BUT, you do hafta get kinda close anyway. Start singing, I don't care what, just something soothing, then, very, very slowly...step towards the Banks of the Bog, look under the nearrside of the bridge and you will find a key. Take the key very slowly, then back away very slowly, never turning your back on the gators.

Once you are back on the upper bank, follow your trail back and bring the key to me and we can unlock the booze wagon!!!

DougeR, sure glad to have you on board, maybe you can ride shotgun for Spaw? And, watch out for the rest of the phoaks, okay? There should be a pretty big group coming in here real soon...all manner of folkers, draped in greens of various fashions and eras..'tis a grand day for a renassiance fair, eh?

Oh, Mbo, have you found yer angel, yet, darlin'? Oh and who is Derry, Derry Darlin's us all? Did you see that?!!

I was going through that first woods and a bunch of rabid possums came after me! Had to beat it up that damn hill and I thought I was having another heart attack!!! Then I slog through the bog and there's a big fockin' Irish guy with a potato stuffed thong tryin' to dance a jig in a tub of lime jello and I had to detour into a REAL swamp.....damn near killed me gettin' outta' that.......and just when I reach the top of a hill and am ready to head for the key stash, some fuckwit in half a gorilla suit and fishnet tights was lighting farts and singed me pretty bad on the way past..............THEN, just when I grab the key, your dipshit garden faeries came out screaming like banshees and swinging tiples everywhere. What the hell is the matter with you anyway, keeping those little pissants around? Those little creeps kept coming til they encountered Peter dressed in green and looking like the Boston Strangler which seemed to confuse them for a minute and I was able to hobble away. You got any idea what its like having a bunch of garden faeries clamped on your legs like a pack of horny beagles??? ...................Geeziz..........Anyway, here's the key....Now get me some Jack!!!!!!!!.........anybody got anything for these cuts?

Yeah Doug, you should have come along..........Did I mention the Jewish princess with the banjo in white socks? I was really excited, but when I started towards her I fell into a cesspool and was only able to get out with the help of a guy who had a Radio Shack R/C car with a winch. The damn winch broke of course....typical Radio Shack....But at that point I grabbed hold of a leg attached to a fiddler with dragonflies hovering around her hooters and clams in her toes.

to the tune of "Just a Song at Twilight:"

When the swamp is quiet, When the moss hangs low
tum-tee-tum - tee-tum-tum, When the water moves slow
That's the time to sing softly, Lay your head down awfully,>br> Stick your head in the mud.

-- favorite lullaby of those long-tailed, sharp-toothed, yellow-eyed alligators from Thatcher Hurd's book, *Mama Don't Allow.*

Any virtual gin and limeade around this joint? Tanqueray, preferably.

I am feeling very mellow after doing a bunch of old-timey stuff last weekend. It is my mission in life to see that children do not forget how to play "In and out the window," "A-tisket a-tasket," etc.

Kat, how did you know about the Green Man and me??

Things must have been pretty rough here last night. I just saw a guy with faeries stuck all over his legs. He was covered with sludge and was lying next to a wench, er, winch. By golly, I think it was Spaw.

Okay, I am gonna go and nurse this nice cold drinkie under this chestnut tree over here...and keep working on the lyrics to this song I've been crafting off and on for two summers...

Man in Green

Saw him in the forest,
His eyes speak trees and vine
Saw him bless the harvest,
His lips taste songs sweet acorn wine

Green, green his cloak
green, green his hood
green, green the garments of the man in the wood

Saw him dancing shadows
Misty meadow grey, dew-dropping rain
Watched him waltz with the barley mows
Gold and silver shining warm autumn grain

Green his hazel wand
Green his oaken shield
Green his ivy-covered mantle, the lord of the field

Green the twilight glows
Green the water gleams
Green, green his secrets, the master of dreams

Green, green the stars
Green, green the fire
Green the whispering glade around us
Green the shade of desire

Green, green my eyes
Green, green my heart
Green my love's dusky shadow
The man in the dark.

THE GREEN MAN
Copyright 1999 Thomas Herring

Amidst the trees, Quivering mulberry leaves;
Where king david found voices from his god.
When spirits tease, they will begin to please;
Shall we listen to their answering song?

CHORUS:
Through the ages, and millenium,
Turning pages on each kingdom come,
As he gazes on the race we run;
In laws of nature, TRUTH!, we return...
To the Green Man...

His steady gaze, Watcher from woodland ways;
East of the moon, West of the stars.
His memories, Bring us forgotten days;
Alexander kissed the tree of the sun on it's bark.

CHORUS

Mysteries, he beckons, "Escape with me,
To madness divine; For human is blind".
Spirits speak, From every flower and leaf
And the Hunter may find the thrill in his mind!

Chorus

Tree of desire, Oh, Tree of the moon,
The tree prophesises, Speaks out and warns.
Gardens require, Oh, but the wild is begun,
The Green Man inside us; Forever reborn!

CHORUS, and repeat first verse!




Blessings upon you!

Anyway, Bert, I'm confident once the folkies got to know me, and find out that I don't have horns on my head, and know which fork to use, at special occasions, they'll probably welcome me in spite of my percieved shortcomings.

I just keep the good stuff under lock and key!

Hey ya'll, this is a FUN and GREEN and SUMMERTIME picnickey kind of Tavern, so have at it, make of it what you will; it is all YOURS.

Ole Spaw will come back no doubt refreshed or frazzled...those dang cigars have got to be downwind, please..and no political buttons of any sort, no proselytising...except for the Green Man, of course, and he wins hands down, especially with all of those wonderful songs already sung in this Tavern!

Open bar, serve yourself, when we run out...someone can make a run to the swamp or move the still! Lemonade, freshly squeezed sounds lovely and I've never tasted it with molasses before....Hmmmm...oh that IS good and so nice and kewl! Thanks!

Tarry a bit
Sing a bit
Watch for the Green Man'O

Dance a while
Rest a while
Watch for the Green Man'O!

Clouds are spent
Bats have gone
Found is the Green Man'O

kat and the faeries start dancing round the ring, with her cats merrily chasing their ribbons....

I've got loads of homegrown (heirloom) tomatoes for the serve-yourself, and pesto made with homegrown basil (rhymes with dazzle).

I do believe I need a nice cool glass of white wine and another of those hammocks please. Just finished 12 hours of choral rehearsa (Byrd, DiLaso, Josquin, DuFay, ya know, the old guys. I can sing 'em, but I sure can't spell 'em at this hour.) Tomorrow we do another 9 hours. I'll try to cruise back through after rehearsal for something stronger, but NOT Spaw's stuff. That loks just like what it is.

Well, that Gin & Limeade sounded so good I went and fixed one; figured I deserve it, being on vacation and all. About half an hour into sippin' it VERY slowly I started feeling crappy, so I went and took my blood sugar, which was climbing toward 200. Had to dump it and take a bike ride. Damn. I'm back for the virtual, and the company.

Can I interest anyone in a circle game, since we are out here on the greensward??

Don't know what a circle game is either, but I'm lolling in my hammock with my chilled freshly made punch that they're serving at the bar right now. It's made from freshly squeezed oranges and lemons, with lashings of gin, which the committed bar staff have been spending hours preparing (that's why they've been so quiet and couldn't help Spaw on his mission).

I've just bought a bamboo flute and in this world where dreams come true, I've mastered (mistressed?) with eaze its elusive notes and fingering, and am playing the most romantic slow air of all with its woody deep tones.

The faeries are dancing. In the distance, a group of elves, Tolkeinesque, are singing. The sound of their sweet voices marred only by the sound of Spaw's gentle snoring (he's fallen asleep from exhaustion)....

Will you come by the hills to a land where fancy is free?
To stand where the peaks meet the sky and the rocks meet the sea
Where the river runs clear and bracken lies gold in the sun
And the cares of tomorrow must wait 'til this day is done.

Will you come by the hills to a land where life is a song?
To stand where the birds fill the air with their joys all day long
Where the trees sing in tune and even the wind blows in time
And the cares of tomorrow must wait 'til this day is done.

Will you come by the hills to a land where legend remains?
Where stories of old touch the heart, where we're led to the days
Where the past it is lost and the future is yet to be won
And the cares of tomorrow must wait 'til this day is done.

Will you come by the hills to a land where fancy is free?
To stand where the peaks meet the sky and the rocks meet the sea
Where the river runs clear and bracken lies gold in the sun
And the cares of tomorrow must wait 'til this day is done.

I could stay here forever. Sigh.

Circle game: example.

All join hands, any number or gender. One sucker, er, volunteer, in the middle.

You need only know your left from your right, and be able to count to eight.

Face left, left foot poised and ready to step out.

To practice, have everyone take eight steps, to the beat. Take eight more.

Now, to the music:

We're marching 'round the village
(3x)
As we have done before.

Everyone stop. Raise arms into arches. "It" goes out one arch, then in the next:

Go in and out the window, (3x)
As we have done before.

Go forth and find your lover,

I kneel because I love you,

(Getting preadolescents to do this is really a chore.)

Everyone joing hand and resume circling left to:

Farewell, I hate to leave you,

Circle turns and circles RIGHT to:

I'm coming back to see you,

These games are lots of fun, and the secret agenda is, you are creating the next generation of FOLK DANCERS, as the moves are the same.
