Lyrics by: Linda Hogan


Here is the female corn
Here is the male
Their wild skirts flying

Here is the sweet dark daughter who passed between those
Fertile currents of each other's love
She sleeps in milky sweetness
She is the daughter who comes from a far away land
a far away time

Where sky and earth
Are Lovers at the dawn each day
Creators' Love in ecstatic embrace

Here is the female corn
Here is the male
The hot barefoot dance
That burns your feet

But I can't stop dancing
Can't stop trading my gifts with the land
Pouring my love into the ground

Long after the sleep of seeds
All things will grow
The children who climb into this world
Will find it green and alive
