Bardic Magick

The Pied Piper.
Scheherazade.
Salome.
Robbie Burns.
Bob Dylan.

BARDS.
Today, I'd like to speak on a topic that I have first hand knowledge of.
BARDIC MAGICK.
Bards have always been the keeper of the news, the gossip, the fantasy, the heartfelt dream.
Bards know the inner beating of your lost soul.
They can dance, sing or rhyme their way into your heart.

Bards are different than just "talented musicians".

Bards are the ones that can take a song and peer into your SOUL.

"Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song...."

I am a Bard.
No, REALLY....I am a Bard!
I work and make my living and loving with music, words and poetry.
 There are times, when my mate and I sing, and the mood of the crowd CHANGES.
 People look wistful.
Old grizzled men CRY.
Children Dance!
People close their eyes and REMEMBER long lost loves.

Music is a Magick thing.

MUSE-ic truly is from the Muses, as is Writing, Dance, Art and all expression.

Sometimes when I am lonely, I sing sad songs.....and it either makes me cry it out...or it cheers me.

Sometimes when I am feeling RANDY...I sing Bawdy songs and my lust springs my nipples hard...
(and if men are listening...well....they enjoy it too....I can FEEL their manhood growing with every lyric! :)

When I am in a loving mood, my love sings out and makes the world a smaller, happier place.

When I am raging with anger, I sing Murder ballads and ....well....I don't feel like killing my mate anymore.
:)

Writing helps me with my life....
And funny....I get letters that say that my writing helps others.

I HEAL through my WORDS and my SONG.

                                                 (Rick is deaf....yet, loves to "sing' with us :)

I wish to heal, help, LOVE, Grow....and help others to do so.

This is what Bards DO.

They sing SPELLS....

Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme....(Kindness/Strength/Fertility/Courage) all good things for a union of two hearts.

If Music be the food of LOVE....Play on.....
Bards can weave a spell of Magick thru words, thru music, thru dance, thru poetry
A gift of the MUSES....

They, who were considered the SOURCE of all knowledge.
Yup.

MUSICIANS and WRITERS.

Such a great post, you must have so much fun being a bard.
I couldn't agree more about using music to change my mood, especially to brighten it when I'm down.
