"Dryada" by R&F Newman (BMI)

 

Be careful who you meet in the woods.
There are forces at work in the universe we have yet to understand

Listen and enjoy! And if this song fits your project, let us know. Available as instrumental also.


Chorus:
Dryada - Dryada Dry Ya Da
Details fuzzy - was I dizzy - knew at once she spoke the living
Earth drawn through her - green made newer So alluring - edges blurring
Dryada ...

Dryada © 2009 Rich & Flo Newman (BMI)

Ah da Keena Ah da keena wayah Kona fee po tay
Swishing -rustling - stirring - sudden shift in the air
With little or no warning - it seemed she just appeared
That first sensation tinged with trepidation
Now she’s at my side matching stride for stride
Stone silence meets my greeting - yet her presence is so massive
I’ll follow where she’s leading - wonderin’ - how ancient that carved staff is
Dryada - Dryada Dry Ya Ya Da
Details fuzzy - was I dizzy - knew at once she spoke the living
Earth drawn through her - green made newer So alluring - edges blurring
Dryada ...
Tangled hair - bronze sheen - a blend of burnished skin tones
Eyes glow spring - new - bud green not unlike some cats that I’ve known
Deep textured folds of fabric fall from shoulders down
Somehow the colors range from silver grays to browns
Encircling each wrist - a bracelet crafted so fine
a design most intricate - gold and copper twisted vines
Ah da keena Ah da keena wayah - HALT!
At spot crammed full where meadow - meets woods & sky & stream
One gracefully shaped arm --- sweeps across entire scene
Just got wise to what those whisperin’ pines been saying
Rhythmic language cleverly expressed through swaying
Thick warm silence broken - in a voice like raspy sighing
I believe she’s finally spoken - her words still in me shining ...
All this is sacred ...
I’m left quietly elated as from my sight she has faded
Urge to follow her to deep woods - somehow rooted just where I stood
Dryada ...
All this is sacred ...
Ah da keena Ah da keen wayah!

About the Song:
description: If there are tree spirits, then Dryada may be their queen, or at least the go-between from the woodland beings to the human kind.
