Treasure Island

Christian Lacdael

(Bury St. Edmunds, England)

Bonfires


From beckoning to threatening,
Changes with changes of the wind,
Bellow where Roman icons reign,
A struggle to force chaos tame,
Wakefires see the night fear defeat,
Chills are so quick to turn to sweat,
Violent flames spit where we sit,
Sun caught, captured and then relit,
Smoke and flame embraced in a dance,
Sat centre stage to a drunken song,
Verve that strives to make it to dawn,
Nothing but embers come the morn,
Past midnight slowly in retreat,
Sway of flames to keep at bay sleep,
A comfort, a blistering heat,
A hunger that's too great to meet.

    Sat center stage to a drunken song,
    Verve that strives to make it to dawn,
    Nothing but embers come the morn,
    wonderful.

Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
