Poet's Notes about The Poem

It is approaching winter here in the Cape (South Africa) . Table Mountain (a World Heritage Site) is covered in beautiful flora. Fires are often the result of carelessness by people using the nature trails. It takes many years for the full splendor of the flora to come into its own again. It is an appeal for all to take care not to damage the environment when they are enjoying nature.

    Like this, did notice however the first stanza does not have the rhyme scheme of the other verses, lanterns and
    fern, but all in all a good write
