lullaby for a fire

Lullaby for a fire

A fire had been burning
for a good part of the night,


and when the flames had calmed down
and only embers, cinders and ash remained,
those who were sitting around in silence
began to make some gentle music
while the glow of the embers echoed
an Italian hilltop town
slowly going to bed
