Outside my place, I heard a sound 				
it thrust deep into me, 					
my head was lost in thoughts profound,				
confined, but now I’m free.						

The music woke my heart to hear				
what scarce my ears perceived,					
those sweet, faint notes, on breezy air 				
as bagpipes’ throats were squeezed.						

Drawn closer, was I, to the bar,			
my head was feeling numbed,			
my hand it craved the whisky jar,		
to Scotland I succumbed!			

The pipers’ band came near to stand,		
my tears, I could not stay,		
yon pipes I love, but they’re most grand,	 	
when heard from far away.

    Amazing grace. The sounds we love are a comfort as you so elegantly point out. You have a sense of pride in your heritage and it shows in this lovely work. I was looking at an old comment you made so I came here and lo and behold, I was treated to this wonderful and fine work of art.

    Well, I guess I'm a dummy...I see the 3rd verse as VERY funny but in the others I hear a beautiful, lilting Scottish melody...Bagpipes DO sound better at a distance do they not?...'Amazing Grace' by the Royal Scottish Bagpipes makes me cry like a baby!...I am so very glad to have discovered your poetry, Maggie Munroe (What a name!) - Tim

    For a horrible moment I thought you were serious. I should have had more faith. Nice to see you writing again. You should do much more of it.-Red
