(Adapted from the Skene Manuscripts from the early 1600’s)
By Rayanne Sinclair
Fill to me the parting glass, to be a friend is all I asked.
I lift the cup to wish you best, as you move to life’s next test.
Your feet be blessed as you depart, may all you meet bring cheerful start.
But friends forever then as now, may we still share as oft allows.
Fill to me the parting glass, goodbye and joy to all we pass.
