For the Love of a Bard

©2003 Alden Drake (Paul A. Haines)



To hug a bard will fortune bring
You can put this fact to the test.
With stories to tell and songs to sing,
To hug a bard will fortune bring.
So with your arms about him (her) ring
And you'll see that I do not jest,
To hug a bard will fortune bring
You can put this fact to the test.

If you would give a bard a kiss,
He would immortalize your name,
In songs or poems such as this,
If you would give a bard a kiss.
So take a chance, don't be remiss,
You'd have only yourself to blame.
If you would give a bard a kiss,
He would immortalize your name.

If into bed a bard you take
You're the luckiest lass (lad) of all,
As I have heard the earth will shake
If into bed a bard you take.
For such grand music you will make
As to fill any concert hall,
If into bed a bard you take
You're the luckiest lass (lad) of all.
