The Lone Piper.....

What is it with bagpipes that so stir the soul

especially when played on an old craggy knoll;

a lone piper standing in swirling wet mist

expressing the need for souls to be kissed.

For weddings or funerals he will offer to play

the sound of the bagpipes providing the way

to enter, or depart, whatever the occasion

he'll play for the gathering with little persuasion.

Most people will know when they see him in place

that he will pipe for them the Amazing Grace;

a well known tune with words that go deep

often producing creased eyes which then weep

for who was once family with memories of old

as they sadly release their love from the fold.....
