THE BARDS SONG
Now take heed and understand
we are the Dreamers of this land,
we're not blessed with winning ways
and may look like waifs and strays,
but remember this - we have a place,
a part to play - a path to trace.
When you speak of us be kind
for we have the power to soothe your mind.
The songs we write that bring you joy,
and the pretty phrases we employ
to calm your fearful troubled days,
were born in the suns first infant rays.
From a single source our varying talents rise
we see your world through very different eyes.
We are aware of subtle change
and know you think of us as strange,
but we sense truth behind disguise,
when lips prove false - we read veiled eyes.
We are the Dreamers of our race
born to live in solitude and space,
in ancient times when dreamings had their birth
they were recounted and given greater worth.
Those times - long past - can't be repeated
but we dream on -
