Wild Elements

By: Paul Spooner

June 10th, 2006



With crimson flames the night was lit

and round about the fire pit

the dancing shapes would dart and flit

and every figure every bit

as wild as before,

as wild as before.


Four airy zephyrs come and go

the oak leaves waving to and fro

come every cloud, begin to blow

will storm become (they do not know)

as wild as before,

as wild as before?


Now water falling from the sky

the streams and rivers ever ply

till foaming ocean drawing nigh

and all the while the seagulls cry

as wild as before,

as wild as before.


But up against the ocean stand

the never ending rocky strand

while mountains high look o're the land

still strong and hard and old and grand

and wild as before

as wild as before.
