A FIRE WITHIN


When a fire is burning within
the mind will keep it lit.
Fanning the flame with every breath
will not allow it to quit.

And whosoever has no fire
posesses a mind that's numb.
No amount of fanning the breath
will allow them to become

wired, inspired and filled with passion
for any worldly thing.
They will spend their time here on earth
with never a song to sing.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
