Playing With Fire


Fire is wild
And cannot be tamed,
Do not be tempted
To play with the fire.
Those who do are permanently maimed

And every time
We try in vein,
To tame the fire
The tryier is slain,

And it seems when it that
The tryer may succeed,
The fire rebels
And he is burned.
Allowing another tryier
To try his try

So let this be a warning my friend
You cannot play with fire,
‘till someone else is burned.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
