A Circle of Equality

This song was composed by young people and adults at Woodcraft Folk's Development Conference in January 2011. Linda composed the melody.

Chorus:

A circle of equality,
A circle of community,

A circle of our unity,
To start the Woodcraft camp.

Awake! Arise! It’s morning cry
Don’t make us get the pans
Hope you all slept warm and dry
We’re early for our clans.

A circle of equality,
A circle of community,
A circle of our unity,
To start the Woodcraft camp.

Woodchips, Elfins, Pioneers
Capturing the flag
Let the sun shine on our games,
Worms in sleeping bags.

A circle of equality,
A circle of community,
A circle of our unity,
To play the Woodcraft camp.

Drinking cocoa round the fire
Smoke gets in our eyes
Stories lifting spirits higher
Time for beddie-byes

(Goodnight Elfins,
Goodnight Elfins
Goodnight Elfins,
Time to go to bed.)

A circle of equality,
A circle of community,
A circle of our unity,
To lull the Woodcraft camp.

Illuminated by the moon
Sleeping through the sound
Of Venturers all in the yurt –
Then sunrise comes around.

A circle of equality,
A circle of community,
A circle of our unity,
To wake the Woodcraft camp.

[Repeat]
