Bright flashes of blazing color
swirled around a figure of fire.
Passion pulsed within his heart
to the music that his soul played!
A joy so rapturous,
a spirit uncontained,
he danced among the sands,
displaying arts of wonder!
Entranced, we watched his grace
and his warmth pulled us in
to a celebration of bliss
that made us radiate with life.
Treating each one his friends
like a king or a queen,
He has shown to all of us
the true meaning of nobility.
With elegance and eloquence
his mind so clever and so virtuous,
He is quick to laugh and slow to shout.
For a friend he is always near,
swift to give out an embrace.
A castle upon his head,
put there for a kingfisher.
Mighty as a warrior
but gentle for a bird.
Brilliant as a poet,
Inspiring us once again.
