Walter Kennedy (ca. 1455 – 1518?) wis a Scots makar associatit wi the Renaissance coort o James IV. He is perhaps maist weel kent as the defendant agin William Dunbar in The Flyting of Dumbar and Kennedie, but his survivin warks clearly shaw him tae hae been an accomplishit "maister" in mony genres.[1] It is likely that a signeeficant body o poetry bi him haes been lost.

His maist impressive survivin poem is The Passioun of Crist.
