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?

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

Amongst the flowers I
