The belief on enchanted groves had always allured me very much. Even more when I read about certain faerie ‘Green Ladies’ hidden behind trees , expecting for wandering pedlars eager for elven dance. I felt that the theme of the Irish song ‘Star of The County Down’ made a nice set with my own. Hereby the quoted lyrics of this song:
"STAR OF THE COUNTY DOWN" (trad.irish)
Near to Banbridge town in the County Down,
one morning in July,
down a boreen green came a sweet coleen
and she smiled as she passed me by.
Oh she looked so neat from her two white feet
to the sheen of her red hair,
sure the coaxing elf, I’d shake myself ,
to make sure she was standing there.
Oh from Bantry Bay to the Derry Quay,
Oh from Galway to Dublin Town.
Ne’er a maid I’ve seen like this sweet coleen,
that I met in the County Down.
