Agnus Og (The Spirit of Youth)
I am the spirit of youth
I am here!
I am making the grass grow feet
I am making the buds sprout upon the branches of the trees
I am making the fern fronds open,
Here in the shade.
Let my spirit be waking deep in your hearts,
Let my song be singing high in your minds
I am the spirit of growth
With my mantle of green
Listen to my song singing upon the hill and the plain.
