Each bard that lived so long ago

Gave all that they could give;

They walked through rain and winter's snow,

That music yet might live.

 

They sang until their throats were sore;

They played their harps and lutes;

They told their tales of ancient lore,

And walked in years-old boots.

 

When government outlawed their trade,

They risked their lives and homes,

And for their courage they were paid

With blood, and tears, and bones.

 

No more are there the ancient bards,

So skilled in note and song.

Their time was short, their lives were hard,

And yet, they still live on:

 

Each bard gave all, they dared not fail,

Gave all for song and art;

But still they live in deathless tales,

And every minstrel's heart.
