Jack In The Green

Have you seen Jack-in-the-Green?
- With his long tail hanging down.

He quietly sits under every tree
In the folds of his velvet gown.
He drinks from the empty acorn cup.
The dew that dawn sweetly bestows.
And taps his cane upon the ground -
Signals the snow drops, it's time to grow

It's no fun being Jack-in-the-Green:
No place to dance, no time for song.
He wears the colours of the summer soldier;
And carries the green flag all the winter long.

Jack do you never sleep - does the green still run deep in your heart?
Or will these changing times, motorways, powerlines, keep us apart?
Well, I don't think so.
I saw some grass growing through the pavements today.

The Rowan, the Oak and the Holly tree
Are the charges left for him to groom.

Each blade of grass whispers, "Jack-in-the-Green."
"Oh Jack, please help me through my winter's night."
And - "We are the berries on the Holly tree:
Oh, the Mistle Thrush is coming. Jack, put out the light!"

Jack In The Green (Tradução)

Você viu Jack-o-verde?
- Com o seu rabo longo que suspende logo abaixo.

Ele calmamente senta-se embaixo de cada árvore
Nas pregas do seu vestido aveludado.
Ele bebe da xícara de bolota vazia.
O orvalho que a alvorada docemente confere.
E torneiras a sua cana sobre a terra-
Transmite as baixas de neve, é tempo de crescer

Ele não é nenhum divertimento que é Jack-o-verde:
Nenhum lugar para dançar, nenhum tempo de canção.
Ele usa as cores do soldado de Verão;
E transporta a bandeira verde todo o Inverno há muito tempo.

Jack você nunca dorme - o verde ainda corre profundamente no seu coração?
Ou fazem esses tempos de modificação, rodovias, cabos de força, guardar-nos à parte?
Bem, não penso assim.
Vi um pouco de grama crescer pelos pavimentos hoje.

A Sorveira Brava, o Carvalho e a árvore de Azevinho
São as cargas partiu para ele para tratar.

Cada lâmina de sussurros de grama, "Jack-o-verde".
"Oh Jack, por favor ajude-me pela noite do meu Inverno."
E - "somos as bagas na árvore de Azevinho:
Oh, o Tordo Mistle está vindo. Jack, anunciado a luz! "
