They dance around a fire, arms in the air,
Not a care nor desire, just dance till the end.
They think not of tomorrow, nor of today,
They forget the past and the good old ways.
Live in the moment, they always say,
And let the moments pass,
Bring to silence your soul,
And to peace bring your heart.
Their words echo in my mind,
But nevertheless are silenced with time,
They come back at a flame’s sight,
A call to freedom and a call to might,
That I might, for once, live my life,
As did the fire, under the starry night.
