Since the beginning of time,

It captured us all

With its seductive dance

And silent call.

It gives a warm light

To help us find our way,

Until it burns out

When the sun makes it day.

Yet it burns us all

Right to the soul,

Either very quickly

Or painfully slow.

Either way it goes

It has undeniable beauty,

Whether in a glass

 Or dangerously free.
