Veshengro Lyrics - The Incredible String Band

Review The Song (1)

Moon of the berries is waning to clay
Bavol the wind leap on the whale's way
Sing for Veshengro, oak ash and may
I will not flash the day glance on the strong
king's shield
Nor yet the moon glance on the frightened man
Bring her sweet peace ere she rests on the
breast of God
With the nutrnegs and oak-apples of her rosary
That counts the praying sand
Who cradles earth and water in the hollow of her hand

I was a wasp on a nettled hill
Ten thousand brothers in a nest of fungus paper
And every sopping apple held its cider sweet for my thin tongue

I was a swineherd at the court of Fionn
I wore the coat of patches with Jalal beneath the stars
sponsored links
Sang at the black court of Ain
I baked sweet pastries for the Quenn of Spain
I hid my alchemy beneath the stone of lies
Burned at the post my boiling brain
Made craters of my eyes

The mystery of history it is not revealed
We hear not clear but only with hope and fear
And the pomp of crime, and the pride of the time

I was a monk repelled by a woman's smell
I sailed in Darwin's ship, a mouse that gnawed the grain
Trapped by the cook on one dark day
I have spoken with the Thames in much sweeter times
And with the Medway where she rolls her waves

The snake-weed is hissing the wind of the morn
The mountains are mouthing where Albion is born
The light rays are gathering where Horus is shown
Sing for Veshengro. oak ash and thorn.

Increds Veshengro | Reviewer: wendy boyd | 8/8/14

As with most of the increds lyrics it is the intuition that is called in when trying to understand what some of the lyrics are about - later i will look up the meaning of veshengro but my feeling-impression is it is about the evolution of consciousness as expressed or played out through many incarnations on Earth. Many of the songs are expressing the theme of creation and incarnation and it is my belief that this band are a band of disciple-initiates who have used music and song as a vehicle to share the wisdom teachings handed down and making them tangible for folks in this age. To bring to life what the soul knows and to aid in the birth of the soul in this great creative cycle. What a beautiful way to teach! By teaching i mean to draw forth that which is already awaiting precipitation, and not to put in as does formal or orthodox education - in other words the increds have played a vital role in drawing out the soul in others - in the sixties we understood this as to 'to turn someone on'. Apologies to the band if this is not in keeping with their intention - its just my interpretation.
