Primordial Fungi Saxy Skeli

Meet another Primordial Fungi! Here we have Primordial Fungi Saxy Skeli blowing on his Craterellus cornucopioides, or Horn of Plenty.

The Cornucopia is a symbol of plenty, coming from Greek mythology. There was a goat with horns named Amalthea, who fed the infant Zeus on Crete. Zeus broke off a horn and gave it to a nymph. Doing such, it was endowed with the power to be filled with whatever the owner desired. Swiss Skeli and La Catrina leave you with a slow tune played on Saxy Sha’s Horn of Plenty, and wish everyone a very happy, plentiful weekend. 🎩🍄🍄🍄💀❤️‍🔥

Horns of Plenty (
Text: © The Fungi Kingdom)

It’s been many years now
So long I can hardly remember
Since I last heard the orchestra
Playing its tune in November

I keep on visiting the venue
To look for their kind
But they won’t do the show
it’s not on their minds

For the moment I don’t feel like twenty
I’m still looking for the Horns of Plenty

Between brown beech leaves
They usually blow so deeply
And beguile the forest air
With their power completely

Playing in full formation
They make the earth break
When going with the rhythm
They make the grass shake

It’s been a while since I was twenty
But I still dig the Horns of Plenty

Since the rain doesn’t fall
There’s no concert in November
All that’s left for now
Are memories to remember

I’m sure it won’t take twenty
To hear again the Horns of Plenty
