The History and Development of Dark Border Morris (pdf)

Steeleye Span, Maddy Pryor the lead singer:

Dance the Dark Morris!
You will find, Summer turns to Wintertime
Deep in the forest, clad in black
Dance the Dark Morris you may never dance back
Boot thrum, stick clack, feel the Earth crack underground
Ancient incantation calls the North wind down
This is the land of Mystery and Myth
This is the world of the Wintersmith

... Coal-black faces,
Changing places,
Through the night
Cold advance,
Is this a dance?
Is this a fight?
Beats as deep as oceans.
Thunder through your soul.
Calling for the emotions you have never known.
