A Tribute to The Highlander

His talent as a Bard explodes
From an exquisite mind it flows 
Through an instrument of script
Flooding parchment reverberating
Through the psyche creating waves  
Reaching the far ends of the universe 

Words of truth deep sentiment flourish
Propelling legitimate personal emotions 
Giving due praise to brave loyal and true
To God nature his love and fellow Bards and
The magnificent highlands he loves so well
Always uplifting inspiring and sharing 

Accept this tribute from an amateur a friend
With gratitude for reading commenting for 
Being just who you are, The Highlander

Audrey, i'm gobsmacked - speechless - lost for words, and other cliche's. Thank you so much for this tribute, i love it. To have a poem written for and about you, is the ultimate honor from a fellow poet >> The Highlander >> James,xx

A fabulous tribute to the great writings of our own James Fraser, Audrey. He is one terrific writer and he will be delighted to read this. Be sure to send him an email so he sees this. It's the wee hours of Monday morning in bonnie Scotland now. Truly a well composed and well deserved tribute! It goes to my favorites, of course. Love, Carolyn
