Fire In The Sky

Crimson fire in the sky,
       Across its face the swallows fly
A beginning and an end,
        No shining star will it offend
I dare not tear my eyes away
        For this brilliance cannot stay
Perhaps in ancient times a man would cry
        Afraid his world must burn and die
The sun is gone, its colors fade
        And night descends upon the glade....

    love this, style and wonderful content. I have noticed your comments on my form;Which I fell into when I read Allowed . I wrote them in lines and paused at the end of each line. That way I didn't get lost. I enjoyed pretending I was Richard Burton then, lots of drama. That was then and now I am just me. Love your work, I'll be back.
