Bonfire (Blogophilia 51.6)



Another log on the bonfire
As they cuddled under his cloak
She knew where it was going
He knew how far.

He said: "I want to hold your hand"
And he adorned it with a star.
"Will you marry me and be my wife?"
Her face reflected that star
"I would love nothing better from life."

So many years gone by now
Joy and pain
Stitches in time
On their tapestry
Etched their faces
Under a cloak
As they face the bonfire.
