Music of the pipes

On a lonely Scottish hill,
I always hear the bagpipes still.
Groaning groans of ghostly wail,
Sounding over a misty vale.

Without a pause they ease and wheeze,
Echoing through the glen and trees.
And racing through my heart with zest.
For this is when it beats the best.

They reap in a growling sweep
Weeping how the bagpipes weep.
Venting proud in low lament,
They play for men heaven sent.

The bagpipes moan their lowly groans,
Tones that were born in my bones.
A roundelay of heavens bray,
Blown in sounds the bagpipes play.

And when the reaper stays my eye,
I pray it's the pipes will say good-bye.

I could hear the pipes as I read.

Another great poem.
Well done.

Seymour,
"They play for men who're heaven sent"?
Just tell me to go back to the "stute"
Loved the read.

This is awesome...I swear I could hear the bagpipes playing in the distance..I've always had an infatuation with Scotland and Ireland, so this struck me. Wonderful!

I read this, then just closed my eyes and listened to the pipes playing in my head. Excellent work, Sy.

Absolutely beautiful, Seymour.
Hauntingly melodic, I found your words to be.
The Irish pipes play in this lady's heart.

Excellent Sy! I want "Amazing Grace" played by a piper at my funeral...I love the haunting sounds...I have several CD's of bagpipe music. Where do you get your inspiration? I was in a writing slump for a time and wondered where everyone else gets their muse?

I cannot help but think of the tribute given to golfer Payne Stewart, and the picture the lone bagpiper made in the mist.

Well done, Dear Sir, as always.

Michael,
Thank you Michael I appreciate.
Caroline,
Thank you for the nice words.
Marge,
The pipes are almost one and the same. Thanks
Poet deVine,
Thank you D, most of my muses come in the early morning when I don't want to get out of bed then an idea comes and hits me in the head.
