.

Outside, the rain is beating down.
The trees are bowing low,
the wind is blowing with such breath
leaves are swirling all around.

Inside these walls is cosy:
log fire burning well,
cat beside my feet
watching as flames swell.

Natures sounds around
have quieted in the storm,
the flames lick out of the fire
keeping my feet warm.

If life could be this simple!
Just sitting by the fire,
losing all my worries
in the flames that dress the fire . . .

I would stay here everyday
and keep the logs on the fire burning.
I'd lose all my stress and worries -
that's what my soul is yearning.
