Armed, upright and shielded in armourAs a knight in shining armour
I went forth -forth I came -
but from fear was the coat of mail castbut in fear my heart was clad,
and from helmet cast in shame.
I want to throw down my weapons,Now I curse my weapons,
sword and shield.sword and shield.
All the stark hostilityMy anger and hostility,
was my coldness now must yield.
I have seen the dry seedsI have seen the dry seeds
finally grow.come alive.
I have seen the light greenI have seen the May Queen's deeds
unfurl.make all the world thrive.
Mighty is the tenderness of lifeSuch strength in this frail life,
stronger than iron,beyond that of steel;
driven out of the heart of the Earthdrawn from earth's core,
defenceless.barely sheltered, in its peel.
Spring dawns in winter regions,Spring! Resolve the winter's knife;
where I froze.the frost that left me harmed.
I want to meet the forces of lifeI will embrace the gifts of life
