Performed as Final Performance as Bard of the West
Round Bardic fire our people will gather
To share in the magic of story and song
The tales that are told, both heroic and tragic
Remind us of where we belong
We find ourselves deep in the song
The warrior, the servant, the artist, the archer
The rulers of kingdoms; their lives are our loom
We weave on it measures of wisdom and wonder
And fortune and folly and doom
Their deeds are the weft of the loom
As our fire burns brightly so sparkles the kingdom
Inspire by deed, be inspired by verse
Your valor, your honor, your skills and your seekings
Give life to these words we rehearse
May your passion live on in the verse
Live on in verse and song.
