Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Bonny May (from June Tabor)
As I have read the lyrics to the song while playing it on Last FM, I was suddenly stricken with the fox motif. Rather I think it is an allegory to Reynardine or Reynard the Fox, so she is truthfully telling her father about what happened to her, but then not really telling him. What say you?
