Vikki sang "The White Shepherd" today. These lyrics need work.

THE WHITE SHEPHERD       Written by Mike OíConnor.

Days are short the wind is chill frost is hard and streams are still

The year is on the wane

Winter thorn is bright with berries deer are grazing in the valley

It will not be long before the White Shepherd comes again.

Geese are flying white as winter frozen branches crack and splinter

The fox is in his den

Cattle in the byre are lowing icicles like knives are growing

Nature has itís way of knowing the White Shepherd comes again.

Sheep are on the lower pasture flakes of white are falling faster

Drifts have blocked the way

The trembling lamb cries for itís mother sounds and fields with snow are smothered

Hard is life as she discovers the White Shepherd comes again.

The rising sun is falsely bright grey as steel is morning light

Sleet is in the rain

The land is given another day fox seeks out some other prey

Cruel and kind is natures way the White Shepherd comes again.

Days are short the wind is chill frost is hard and streams are still

The year is on the wane

The lambs will be the first to know green shoots lie beneath the snow

Life and seasons come and go the White Shepherd comes again.
