Forest fires roar out life
Intensity of heat, they blaze
Fuelled as wind, doth blow
Blackened earth to cinders go.
Forest fires power destruct,
Of every living thing,
Blackened earth –
Forced to hide away, in shame
It’s quality of beauty give.
As death gives way to birth of life,
Springs forth each bud as Springs’ –
Excitement strengthens burst of life
Conquers through blackened death!
Love in life, is but the same
For out of death doth grow –
New strength of life, encouraged by
The birth of beauty bountiful –
