The Silent Field

There's a silent field this August 
Where the gentle Cherwell flows, 
Where this year untramped by festive feet 
The grassy meadow grows 

But birds sang every morning 
The Festival Bell still pealed 
The water-lilies opened white 
And the moon rose over the field 

And where the stage is wont to stand
For those five August days
Those gone before will gather
As a ghostly Fairport plays.

Martin's drums, Maart's guitar,
Swarb's flying fiddle strings
With Trevor, Roger, David
As Sandy Denny sings.
