The Elf-Stone

See the elfin-stone by the water’s edge; he is calling through the night;
He has hair of moss and heather, hidden halfway from the light.
“Can I come with you, can I play with you, I will teach you of my songs.”

See the elfin-stone by the water’s edge as He greets you from the earth,
See his eyes of wisdom burning, lines of crystal on his face.
“Can I come with you, can I dance with you, I will teach you of my lands.”

See the elfin-stone by the water’s edge in the twilight where we meet;
Feel the power of the ages, of the glaciers and the peat.
“Can I come with you, can I work with you, I will teach you of your call,
Can I come with you, can I work with you, I will teach you of your core.”
