Around the Sapling Ceremony
Around the Sapling
Happy woodland creatures so gathered;
Bringing their bowls and pitchers of water.
In time to joyful celebrate
And even to commemorate
The Stripling Oak, new life.
To consecrate the spot
Where giants once had stood
Welcome Neo, Stand you in good stead:
A congress convened in sylvan ceremony
Many pledges, each one solemn fealty
And, welcome prince in forest primeval
Share our home and demesne medieval.
