Story behind the song
The lyrics for this song were originally written for Kathryn's (yet-to-be-published) novel The Healer's Choice; they ended up not fitting into the story, but will probably be included in its sequel.
Lyrics
Greenwood Woman Lyrics by Kathryn Hinds She strolled the greenwood, leaves in her hair. I beckoned to her, my bower to share. Nothing so lovely, nothing so fair As the greenwood woman with leaves in her hair. Love in her eyes, but grief in her air, She promised to stay till the trees all were bare. Nothing so precious, nothing so rare As the greenwood woman with leaves in her hair. We dwelt the summer without any care, And love never favored a happier pair. Nothing so lovely, nothing so fair As the greenwood woman with leaves in her hair. But leaves turned golden; branches grew spare. When the green was gone, away she would fare. Nothing so precious, nothing so rare As the greenwood woman with leaves in her hair. Now blessed be the Watchers, who answered my prayer With evergreen holly to conquer despair. Nothing so lovely, nothing so fair As the greenwood woman with leaves in her hair. With evergreen holly to conquer despair And the greenwood woman with leaves in her hair. copyright 2008 Kathryn Hinds
