about

Recorded for Tricky Pixie's Mythcreants album in 2008, as a direct answer and companion to Alec's "Creature of the Wood", "Daughter of the Glade" is the voice of the Wild Feminine, making her presence known.

From S. J.:
"I chose "Daughter of the Glade" for Witchy Ways because this song definitely belongs in the category, Things That Go Bump in the Night. She's fierce, she's fun, and she'll take you down the path to ecstasy if you give her an inch. We wrote our own parody of this song, "Daughter of the Grave", that I would have added here, but it's not recorded yet. I gotta tell you, though: the zombie mosh pit that that parody inspired when we performed it on Halloween night in Seattle a few years ago? Damned impressive."

A portion of all download sales of WITCHY WAYS goes to support Wolf Haven International, as part of the Online Hallowe'en Artists' Studio Trick-or-Treat.

lyrics

I am a daughter of the glade
never tamed to mortal ken.
goat feet and striking yellow gaze
the sultry voice of the summer maze
I am the beast beneath fair skin
with but a song your love I'll win

As you would a satyr when he roams,
Beware the faun who hunts alone,
a prowling spirit on her own
all spice and fire to the bone!
a thirsty chalice for thy blade!
Come now, to the daughter of the glade!

In Song and Storm I came to life
By Hoof and Horn I came to be
I need no pipes to cast my spell
I am the tale no heroes tell!
hie to the woods, boy, you'll be glad you stayed.
Come now to the daughter of the glade!

Satyr, when thy mortal lovers fade,
I will take you, unafraid!
and here's your perfect chance to try
a lover bold and as sweet as I--
Dark and warm as winter wine!
You've never tasted fruits as fine!

I see you waste your golden song
on mortal maidens, dusk to dawn
Those virgin girls will ne'er be true
come taste a love as wild as you!
You'll meet your match when you meet my eyes!
but I'll allow you your surprise.

I am a daughter of the glade,
and I will make no man a wife!
By Hoof and Horn I came to be;
in Song and Storm I came to life!
Leave off thy chase! Thy prize is here!
and she will love you without fear!

I am a daughter of the glade
never tamed to mortal ken.
goat feet and striking yellow gaze
the sultry voice of the summer maze
I am the beast beneath fair skin
My song is done.
Thy love I've won.
