Anciently to fill the chimney
with smoke, to warm the room
the fire had to be brought in
tinder lit, to light dry wood or coal
upon the hearth, today our lives
search the spark, to ignite
a fervent hope, stoke ambition
define a goal, cause to be an action
carried to a point, heat of sparkling
brightness blaze, through days and night.
