The Heart of White and Green By Llykael Dert-Ethrae
Ooooh, she's a merry young lady from Illarien Who carries the joys of ladies and men Hair shining so bright in the light of the moon Freely sharing her love – oh my what a boon! So quiet and soft she darts among trees All animals swarm and never do flee. Sheee's the friend upon which we always can lean Oh she's the great heart of pure white and green! Soooo with hair like the snow and eyes like a leaf And a soul so pure it washes all grief She bounds all about showing kindness to all Wildly dancing with us – oh my what a ball! Her smile so wide it's bright as the sun An aura as warm as a freshly baked bun. Sheee's the friend upon which we always can lean Oh she's the great heart of pure white and green! Allll beasts and lush plants she bids them goodnight Her singing sweet tunes sets their dreams alight She's skipping through woods never snapping a bark Aptly flitting is she - oh my what a lark! It's plain to us all as you can now see She adores them as much as you and me. Sheee's the friend upon which we always can lean Oh she's the great heart of pure white and green!
