Open the Door Softly

Open the Door Softly

Open the door softly
I've something to tell you dear
Open it up no wider
Than the crack upon the floor
Open the door softly
I've something to tell you dear

Warm summer grasses
Have whispered it in your ear
Skeins of shining waters
Ask you patiently for to hear
Tall lonely timbers
Have taught it to the deer

Sad winds in autumn
Will tell you as they pass by
Wild geese flying eastward
Leave their music in the sky
Listen at evening
And answer the wild birds cry

variously credited to Archie Fisher, Brendan Behan and Dion
  Boucicault. To the best of our knowledge, it's traditional. RG
