The Minstrel's Monument...A Poem by Ian Dun Gillan

No somber verge over them should rise
And no gravestone to mark their demise
But let their notes play out on the lute
We pray never let their songs go mute

Their music is light and brightly hued
And always played for lifting the mood

Sung in good company to be sure
New musicians fondly learn their score
Like all those heroes in tales of old
Let their stories go on to be toldScribed down and saved through all the ages

To be found upon worried pagesIn aged tomes where all old songs go

No more fitting end can minstrels know.
