John Barley (Harvest is Here)

Pour the wax and set to light
The sacred fire
We’ll share a toast with friends tonight
Dance in the firelight

As John Barley laughs and waves
At the ending of his days
He is happy to be going

Whisper wishes and regrets
Tommorow’s hope, yesterday’s debts
He’ll take them with him when he’s leaving
The weavers are done weaving
And Harvest is here

There’s a Corn King in a field
He’s all on fire
He’s been good to us this year
There is no need of tears

Around the fire we will go
One more dance before it snows
And the earth is set to sleeping

Call the corners and the maids
Bring the minstrels and the babes
This is no time for weeping
The reapers are done reaping
And Harvest is here
