lyrics

Lord Of Green And Red
By Keith Patman
© 1980

Reminiscence of Eden's budding,
Essence of things which grow,
Green is the tinge of beginnings,
The power asleep in a crocus bulb
Held in winter's tight-clenched fist
Beneath the bleak unwarmth of snow:
Beneath the snow, O Lord, the green.

Staunch in the cold of an innyard,
Juniper! holly! mistletoe!
Green is the wail of a midnight birth,
The color of atomic dance
When sparkling angels celebrate,
Springing Root of Jesse, O
Lord of all that is green!

Glow of a bright flame burning
In the warm heart of a cattle shed,
Red is the hue of deep, deep things:
Rich bone marrow – Word enfleshed;
"A sword shall pierce" – the mother's pain.
Praise be, O Rose of Sharon, Lord of Red!
Praise be for dark wine sparkling
On the table of the broken bread!
