Autumn Bonfire

Over the week
We gathered branches
All shapes and sizes
Praying in our minds
Please no rain
The mound grew and grew
Ten feet tall and ten feet around

Gathering our crowd all around
Quiet, not making a sound
Lighting candles and fire both
Our eyes lit up with the bonfire
Our hearts ablaze with delight
And maybe a little fright
Crackling
Sparks shoot out
Standing back
Amazed for a bit
As time passes
Dullness sets in
Chatter on the rise
Careful, not too close
Flames are cooling down

A guitar is brought forth
Singing in tow
Songs bursting from pipes
Festive delights
Calming the heart
A wonderful ending
To the night

Until next gathering
