A Celtic Spirit poem


A talented piper with a tune to squeeze
     Starts Gaelic music with expertise
Bellowing melodies with glorious prestige
     Triumphantly shaping the festivity.

Light airs provided for wedding enchanting
     Moving celebrations to elegant dancing
The piper creates a vibrant experience
     Sounding announcement for the bride's appearance.

Distinguished remembrance for a love departed
     Embellished and delicate to oblige broken-hearted
Assisting with brilliance with the emotional state
     Harmoniously uplifts with Amazing Grace.

May the pipes not be for horns of war again
     Sounding primitive fear in the hearts of men
But may the pipes be for peaceful convictions
     In colorful patriotic parades of respected traditions.

         by Danny Ray Cole, a friend and piper
