Fire Burns


Fire burns red and hot, inside and out
Some ignore it while others shout
It can be used for good or for ill
Used to save or used to kill

Fires burn passionate and deep
They give us strength when we wish to weep
Or they burns us made and make us rash
Their only goal: to see us crash

Fires burn fierce and strong
They care not for right or wrong
Put them out or watch them burn
Let them go and watch and learn

Fire burns without control or thought
It runs its coarse and can't be caught
Whether for bad or for good
We'll always have fire and always should

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
