Bells For My Bards

Many of you are near and dear to my heart. And many of you have received a bell from me, a gift for your inspiration to me, your bravery, and how you are so truly amazing that you have touched everyone with your gift of story and song. I wrote this for you, all of you. For you bring tears to my eyes in amazement with your beauty and growth.

Your words sing with beauty and glory
They touch every heart near the fire
You have changed many lives with your lilting
You have traits that so many admire

Take this bell with my blessing
Keep it close to your ear
May it's ringing remind you
You're beloved and dear

Our hearts laugh when jesters fall downwards
Our hearts break when you start to lament
Our hearts smile when endings are happy
When you finish your songs we are spent

Take this bell with my blessing
Keep it close to your ear
May it's ringing remind you
You're beloved and dear

A muse to so many around you
You inspire the warriors to stand
The East is so proud of your triumphs
Your words can be heard through the land

Take this bell with my blessing
Keep it close to your ear
May it's ringing remind you
You're beloved and dear
