lyrics

The Huntsman

When the Huntsman came
home , it was nearly Spring
I opened my door gave him the last of our bread
but the mead I'd made
I hid from him
I didn't love him

& if you be the wolf
with the wolf-skin on your back
who howls for the night
& stares with red eyes
Will I be the bird
with the broken wing?
& will I sing?

The Huntsman lays down
with his feet upon
my white bed
& when I said a word
he threw his flint at my head
Now my daughter sleeps
out in the wood
& my son won't speak

& if you be the wolf
with the pointed teeth
who snarls when he speaks
with fetid breath

Will I be the bird
that pecks out your eyes?
& flies
