The bright blaze begins to flicker
As gusts of wind engage it in the eternal dance
Defiant it burns
Ever bright
Ever beckoning
Its light boldly chases away the bravest of darknesses

The eternal chord is struck
And the well acquainted partners continue the eternal dance
The gust leads, the blaze flickers
Over and over, bow, curtsy
A breeze cuts in, the flicker accepts

The flicker loses light
As darkness grows bold
Breezes joyfully tease the quickly cooling embers
Darkness show no fear
As embers crack in protest
And love grows cold.
