On Giftedness and a Thought for the Less than Fortunate….

'Dolly wants to survive this Winter'- drawn by Leslie S. Graves

 

The Deep Tin Whistle Plays Long and Low

Low and long the single notes

stretch across our hearts

touching places only memories know

A long last beam of light

shines through a frosted pane of glass

tries to warm places inside my soul

Sing your haunting, beautiful song

of deep bleak winters long long ago

reminding us to spare a moment

For those who’s night will be spent

among dark alleys and flakes of snow

young ones with no where to go

The deep tin whistle plays long and low…

and low and long

calling all to heed, heed and respond please

Out in the cold cold winter streets this year

there is great need

And the low tin whistle plays deep and long and hauntingly

playing tunes upon our souls…

shine a light for one other tonite…

I promise you it will never ever feel quite so right…

    Beautiful and heart-breaking.

    Thank You Mona.. just folks without, and the growth of homelessness over here has been much on my mind recently… this is how they wanted to be written as I listened to some Celtic Christmas music last night… Maybe a cheerier post in the making next… hope it.. was not too heart breaking.. ;-D
