The Minstrel's Monument

by Hoegard Harfoot
May 18, 2011

No somber verge over them should rise
And no gravestone to mark their demise

But let their notes play out on the page
And there perchance some song to be swaged

Let meter be bright to light the day
To offer some hope and deeds essay

Like all those heroes in tales of old
Let their stories go on to be told

Passed down and scribed through all the ages
To appear upon worried pages

In aged tomes where all old rhymes go
No more fitting end can minstrels know
