Reflection while staring at fire,

Flames licking logs, going higher…

Not many now

Bother to know,

How these moments inspire.

Strike up a fiddle and play,

Enjoy feasting today…

Be glad the sun

Is at lowest “run”,

Will grow brighter each day!

Sit near the fire and weep,

For all the memories we keep…

But a new year

Is coming dear,

When we wake up tomorrow from sleep.

In modern times, TV,

One channel broadcast continually…

A burning fire

A fire place’s desire,

At Winter Solstice thoughtfully!

–Jonathan Caswell
