Wildfire, wildfire

My, how you spread

From thawing my heart

To burning my head

Marveled by your light

But I failed to see

You were slowly

Consuming me

First a small flame

That helped keep me warm

Spread through my forest

Now I’m praying for storms

To douse the ashes

With pouring rain

Put out the fire

Let me freeze again
