“Green Sleeves”

Well, when you look at this image you’ll probably think she meant to say “Green Leaves” instead of “Green Sleeves”, but nope as I was processing this image the first thing that popped into my head was an old English song, which many of you probably don’t even know; “Green Sleeves”, which if I were to be proper and spell the title correctly, it was “Greensleeves”.

If you know the lyrics, this image in no way resembles the words LOL, but Green is the operative word here, as you can see!

Here are the lyrics to the song Greensleeves if you haven’t heard of it before! 🙂

Alas my love you do me wrong
To cast me off discourteously;
And I have loved you oh so long
Delighting in your company.

Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves my heart of gold
Greensleeves was my heart of joy
And who but my lady Greensleeves.

I have been ready at your hand
To grant whatever thou would’st crave;
I have waged both life and land
Your love and goodwill for to have.

Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves my heart of gold
Greensleeves was my heart of joy
And who but my lady Greensleeves.

Thy petticoat of sendle white
With gold embroidered gorgeously;
Thy petticoat of silk and white
And these I bought gladly.

Greensleeves was my delight,
Greensleeves my heart of gold
Greensleeves was my heart of joy
And who but my lady Greensleeves.

Go Green!!!
Go Green!!!

  1. Yes, I have heard that song many a time (although ‘obviously’ far too young to remember it when it was released). Great one too. Also your photo of green leaves are actually making me think of spring which is a very, very, very good thing with all this snow around 🙂
