Fire

A Poem By Elizabeth Anne // 8/26/2011

Fire

What burns more bright 

Than the light of a fire? 

It casts shadows,   

And lights up the sky; 

It fills the darkness 

With light that is merry,   

And cruel, 

And evil. 

It fills up the cold  

With danger, 

And laughter, 

And light. 

And what burns more bright 

Than the fire of the soul?

If Christ is within 

It is a sight to see.

  It fills up the cold   With

 

It fills up the cold  
With danger, 
And laughter, 
And light. 

Such a cool stanza. The ending's awesome too.

I have hated the words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right. --The Book Thief

   Hey, wow! This was good!

 

 Hey, wow! This was good! Especially the last part:

And what burns more bright
Than the fire of the soul?
If Christ is within
It is a sight to see.

See him with his books:
Tree beside the brooks,
Drinking at the root
Till the branch bear fruit.
See him with his pen:
Written line, and then,
Better thought preferred,
Deep from in the Word.
