All Things Green Man & The Traditional Jack-in-the-Green


Hastings Jack

The Coming of Jack 

Oh the time of the yearly gathering is near!
To the Old Town of Hastings the masses they’ll steer,
Colour collaged with leaf and spring flowers will enlace
Robes, gowns and garlands below each painted face;
The gathering they’ll come and for One they’ll await,
They’ll dance, they will sing, for him they’ll elate
As he stirs in the shadows awaiting to be seen
Beckoning the sun behind his bright mask of green.
