The Minstrel Plays

The Minstrel Plays

The minstrel plays and we follow;

To the strains of a lute we dance;

The tune played is full of sorrow

An end to such a sad romance;

The fool wears the mask of gladness

But the disguise is wet with tears;

In my heart there's only sadness

As has been in my life for years;

In the costume party of life

We go on but in different plays;

You wear not the mask of a wife

Single you are in many ways;

Do we part as friends who can say?

The pain is still too much today.

A sad song to accompaniment of a bittersweet lute.  Fine poem.  Simply wrought.  I love it.  --David

Like the minstrels of old you evoke such emotion Alistair. Beautifully penned!
