  1. The Moss Queen

From the recording The Book of Spells

The Moss Queen, sometimes called the BuschgroƟmutter, is a mysterious being from German mythology, and the leader of the moss women.

Lyrics

Luscious veins of spongy growth
Creeping upon the fragrant earth
The moss women chant their inaudible drone
Calling nocturnal creatures to the spiraling dance

Spinning her green spell on me
The moss queen reclaims all
Tread the woodlands carefully
The moss queen reclaims all

You transform mere mortals
Cushioning while their ecstatic feet chase on
As the hum of the night envelops their skin
The moss of the earth creeps on,

Spinning her green spell on me
The moss queen reclaims all
Tread the woodlands carefully
The moss queen reclaims all

The owl, the bat, the bullfrogs sing,
The fireflies glowing steadily,
And the fox, he lifts a curious ear
As the moss of the earth creeps on

Spinning her green spell on me
The moss queen reclaims all
Tread the woodlands carefully
The moss queen reclaims all

And as your viridescence glows softly underfoot
You infuse the woodlands and all of your creatures with magick,

Spinning her green spell on me
The moss queen reclaims all
Tread the woodlands carefully
The moss queen reclaims all
