On Celtic Music
He appeared as rutty and old
As the exposed rocks and cliffs
Of the Emerald Isle
That he called home his whole life.
We�d just finished listening to
A collection of Celtic Music
Which had a flute, harp, piano,
And the bagpipe.
He drew hard on his favorite
Long stemmed pipe.
�Do you know why all Celtic music
Is so haunting?�, he asked.
I shook my head �No�.
�It�s because the wood
From which the flute, harp, piano,
And bagpipe were made is no more.
All the forests from which they came
Were all cut down
For planting crops,
Living and burning for warmth.
The instruments carry the spirit
Of the forest that once was,
So they sing their forelorned songs
In remembrance of their birthplace!�
