Fires of the Revealtion

Updated on March 18, 2010

Let me watch by the campfire friend

    And I will bear the burden.

Let me stir the ashes of times past

    and let us do the remembering.

Let us see the flames and the fumes rising

    And I’ll recount to you what is known

Sit quietly as the flames dance within you

    And scorch the laden isles of your mind.

Look now and see the beginnings of the old men

   As time hastens and beckons its call.

Speak now for soon it will be nigh

   And chance as it were will have passed.

Time stands still for neither you nor I

    but passes men on its journey.

Brisk fires in the mind are but themes

    written and danced in the eyes of men.

Too soon is the life of those forgotten

    and vacant of time as time takes time.

As flames go wild we behold the specter

    of thousands and of millions.

While the ashes glow red hot

   We watch the epic poem of Salem.

But when the fumes arise from Jehosephat

    Pass the word and let me watch, the fire.
