Autumn Storm By Firelight

A flash of lightening rips across the sky.
We huddle close beneath the trembling eaves.
As thunder roars a nightmare lullaby
And strips the trees outside of summer’s leaves

The fire is warm. It’s light is warmer still.
A gentle beacon holding back the dark.
Yet, in the light of day we know we will
Deny the fearful pounding of our hearts.

The ancient wonder once again is near.
The fury of the storm awakes our past.
When Gods and nature both were to be feared,
And spells of warding were by fire cast,

An autumn storm returns us to that place
Where natures glory awed the human race.
