I will not call for

Pibroch or coronach

This time. This was not

A work part done. The model

Was working and complete -

The testimony of Jesus was testified

To an end. The talents had been

Fully traded. The Master’s

Final touches had touched. “And all

The Trumpets sounded for him on

The other side.”

On the death of Donald Dewar, Scotland's first minister, I wrote some verse - but about a year later at the funeral of another Donald I realised that this believer, unknown yet well known, was a more worthy subject of verse.
