Fight Forest Fires


The burning news
Of a forest fire
Leaves a lasting scar
On my tender heart.

Lush green nature
Turns into ashes
In bordering houses
It's just a nightmare.

Loss of resources
Gathered property
And homes and valuables
Keep mounting high.

Trained firefighters
Put their lives at stake
To save people and life
And all their holdings.

Sources of fires
Must be identified
For man made fires
Let justice prevail.

Continued dry spells
Must be attended to
Let research be directed
To prevent all fires.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
