This is a real and beloved modern man. But he is timeless, and could belong to any era. He strums his guitar, he conceives his lyrics and his poems as he sings his heart out in the square to passersby. His poems are always relatable-songs of love, loss, and great struggles for freedom and identity in a challenging world. His eyes flash, his smile charms, but he is always singing with deep feelings borne of his own passion and trials. There is a true story about a man In the 15th Century who sang with his lyre while a plague ravished Europe. He sang in taverns to allay people's fears. His love and joy buoyed them in terrible times. He drank so much one night he was thought dead and thrown on a pile of bodies. When he awoke he arose and walked away. All his life, he continued to play and lift the hearts of a disheartened people! This is such a man!
