Fire


A hand it burns,
for a field it yearns.
The smoke it churns,
Fire learns.

Alarms will ring,
engines will roar.
The house is burning,
down to the floor.

Fire does leave,
victims and pain.
They suffer and wonder,
if the fire will come again?

    This poem is close to my heart right now, as an arsonist burned our church building last week! My grandchildren were very worried about fire for a good while, and worried about the arsonist as well - but he was caught this WeeK! Funny, how when things happen in your life, a poem will pop right out at you. Thanks, David! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
