Follow The Piper Poem by Bryan Sefton

Follow The Piper

Rating: 5.0


See them all laughing? See them all dancing?
It's a game sadly that I cannot play
It's a scene glowing in a mind growing
But they're unknowing it's lost in a day
Gone in a twinkle, lost in a second
Held in a tiny hand too small to hold
And yet it's more precious than buckets of diamonds
Barrels of rubies, quarries of gold
Minds clear as spring water catching bright sunshine
Free from all human greed, free from all hate
Blessed with God's loving and left to its learning
How will you fare my loves, left to your fate
I in my helplessness, I in my sorrow
I in sincerity give this advice
Go find the piper, tell him I sent you
Say I'm the crippled boy he left behind
Say I'll forgive him if only he'll take you
Away from the ignorent, greedy and blind
Then hear the music, then feel the feelings
Cling to the promises made as he plays
Then go with the piper. Go with him laughing
Go with him dancing through all of your days
