Leering Hearth - Poem by Benjamin David

As I approach the hearth, dilapidated ashes grave
leering evermore, pensive residue, wooden stave

Subservient maniacal, empty poultice
Chimney's harrowing winter's solstice

Lenient stance, the yielding heart mourns
Would not thou present her placid adorns?

One's turning head awaits door's request
I wish her the key, pacify heart's unrest
