Bark dark as a midnight pass   

Shade is a blanket across the luscious green grass

Calming aroma flies through the breeze

In the distance are clear blue seas


A newly kindled flame pollutes the skies

Flames roll through as greenery dies

Hellish flame roars about   

All the green is put to rout  

The time of flame is nigh


After the flare

Nurture and care

Nature’s cruelty is all that's fair 


Burnt bark a reminder to all

Of how the trees’ leaves came to fall 

Even though it’s been burnt to cinder

It still stands strong through roughest winter


Time passes from days to years

The scars of fire leave all with fears

Birds and people know what came to pass 

And now the green has returned to grass.
