|creations; “One song I wrote called ‘Hymn for Healing’ is dedicated to the victims of the September terrorist attacks. Another song, a vocal, ‘Celtic Soul’ was inspired by a trip to Scotland I took with WRAL photographer Rick Armstrong a number of years back. We traced NC’s Scottish roots and did a series of news stories.”

Celtic Soul – a song
by Bill Leslie
Steaming north on a stallion of iron,
Up the Highland highway of steel,
Over bogs and bridges – and heathery ridges,
And mountains so green they seem surreal,
Oh, how strange to be in a foreign land,
And feel more at home than I’ve ever been,
Where the lightning flashes and the thunder rolls,
I have come to claim my Celtic Soul,
So wild and rugged this land,
Sacred this place where I stand,
It’s a feeling that burns,
A heart that yearns,
To touch the very place of my people’s birth
Spirits of my ancient kin,
Rise up to greet me with the wind,
From the Isle of Skye to the fog of Glencoe,
I have come to claim my Celtic Soul.
