... the old black rum
BareFoot In The Rain
Oh disdain Oh disdain, you spatter tears upon my day
I sat long and waited, you taunt at me, of coming fray,
Forest nymph, forest nymph, Iíve come to watch you dance,
Oh rain, Oh rain, play the song again, for her prancing trance,
Nymph of light, lilac and white, I feast upon thy sight,
Please dance again, in laden rain, and lift my melancholy blight
You dance for me, bíneath the willow trees, this night,
Passionate light, naked in silken rain dress, in the sparking lights
Watcher and lover, awaiting the wooing rite, lustily a fire
barefoot in the rain, lovers in the green, silver bodies of the silken mire.
Tonight the rain does not tire.
