The Bluestones

Who knows the secret
Of the standing stones
Who knows the story
Of those ancient bones
 
Five hundred years
Of holding strong
Then summoned for
The journey long
 
To southern lands
And open space
A sacred, liminal
Magic place
 
And time reveals
The truth aloud
The sovereign bluestones
Standing proud
 
Standing stones of blue and grey
Silent, watching, day by day
Seasons bring, sun and snow
The stars above, can only know
 
Gift of light from distant sun
From near and far the people come
At solstice time midst ancient stones
That stand upon the ancient bones
Who knows what the old ones knew
The mystery held in stones of blue
Of song and story, tale and rhyme
They’ve travelled through the mists of time
 
(instrumental chorus)
They are the deeds of men of old
They are the seeds of legends told
Born of fire deep in the earth
Magic stones imbued at birth
 
Children of the mother stones
Your journey has not yet been told
Only elders and wise men know
Dark mists of time will never show
 
(Chorus)
Standing stones of blue and grey
Silent, watching, day by day
Seasons bring, sun and snow
The stars above, can only know
 
Who knows the secret of the standing stones
Who knows the secret of those ancient bones
They are the deeds of men of old
They are the seeds of legends told
Of song and story, tale and rhyme
They’ve travelled through the mists of time
