Daughter of the River
She swims amongst the reeds To find what she needs To plant the seeds Watch the old forest grow When those seeds are sewn Shifting roots in tow The water maiden's pleased Hair of golden silk Wearing green grass dress Not of elvish ilk Skin as white as milk This place has grown to live as her own domain Her charter drawn in vain The moon here never wanes Flowers of every shade Deep ponds and streams Where she naked wades But under care of dearest Tom No foul darkness creeps forth of the bog When they're singing their ancient songs Goldberry is her name She is the goddess Of herbs and trees and of this place Captivated by her voice Given no choice Must follow this melodic noise Until the forest is destroyed
