Written in spring after a skeleton wedding I attended in rural New Hampshire


We came down with witches just past midnight
All spirits came out from where they hide
And I Hold the green garlands for the fair bride

The bride she wore white, the groom he wore grew
All ancestors rose for the big day
And I know nothing here can be taken away

CH:I’d like to be, be there again
Skeleton wedding in spring

Now we eat grass cakes & spring cordials
Queen Anne’s Lace, Skullcaps, & Morels
And I watch the moonlight dance on their skulls


Saints pass a by in robes of fine silk
All of the dead will rise to the ilk
And I rub the brides rose, it will never wilt
