One day as I was out walking,
Chasing the clouds up the Fell
I saw someone coming towards me,

Coming down through the mist on the hill
It was a young girl that came striding
With a gait that was easy and free
At one with the wind and at one with the land,
A girl from the north country

I stopped by the wall to bid her good day,
She spoke and I drowned in her smile
We passed each other and went our own ways,
But she’s here with me now for all time

She could charm the sheep from the mountain
Coax the deer from the glen
She whispers to horses at midnight
She’s as bright as a jenny wren
She could tempt the birds down out of the trees
Make the fish swim out of the sea
She’s as sweet as a flowered filled meadow in June
She’s my girl from the north country

Now she’s always with me when I’m walking the fells
She’s my muse, my mentor, my guide
We met only briefly, one moment in time
But she’s constantly here by my side
