Fire on the River

And I watched as the river burst into flame,

Sparks and water dancing, one and the same.

I watched as the fire cascaded the earth,

Fierier than the hottest hearth.

I watched as the hot light filled the darkest of nights,

One of the most fantastic of sights.

I watched the sparks erode away,

Oh why can’t something so beautiful stay?

I watched from my safe little place,

Than disappeared without leaving a trace.

The beautiful fires that filled the dark night,

Spilled a beautiful, colourful, lovely, hot light.
