Hello Timothy Reilly!

Since the Green Man can supposedly see into the future, and we have
Severian's future in hand, the Green Man's phrase may relate to the mine at
Saltus (which is the next place Severian will see her--"above ground" on
the surface rather than "under ground" in the mine shaft), or, since this
seems rather weak, it may refer to the widow's cabin in the mountains,
where Agia comes down the stairs from the attic where she was
hiding--definitely "above ground."

Still later, she comes down from the sky on a winged thing and plucks him
up from behind enemy lines--come to think of it, that was "above ground,"

Or maybe the Green Man is just bluffing.
