Let the flames drive away the cold of night
so that in comfort and joy we can share
the fire’s cheerful glow. Let us delight
in the friendships that first spark, and then flare
into existence as we talk and sing
together around this circle. While some
of these new relationships may not bring
lasting warmth, there are those that will become
a lasting flame to keep you warm throughout
your life. Those that last only a season
are of value, but those that last…Ah! Shout
for joy! They’re the ones who bring life Reason!
Some friendships may dim, but some will stay true
As the embers fade, and then glow anew.
At long last, I have finally written part IV of this cycle (part III was published back on Jan.21). I’ll be sharing this with dVerse for Open Link Night.
