The Fire of Hearth


it is addressed thusly:
A song.
it reads:
Sometimes when you awake at night
Do you hear a funny sound
If you are as I am, I think you might
And here is what I've found
If it's a thump, of it its a creak
Or a groaning of which you cannot speak
A shaking deep within the ground
Do you feel your heart grow weak?

Fear not, dear man, for all of these
Are sounds your furnace makes
In the winter, or when ere it please
It gets the groans or gets the shakes
Aflame within, it must still strive
With passion's strife, a burning drive
- in trembling fear do what it takes
To keep the fire of hearth alive.
