Friction, sparks blow inflame

From Prometheus’s stealth came

Coaxed from dry sticks dead

Red to blue and orange spread

Come sit, eat and drink by fire

Great tales tell that will inspire

Crafted fingers slowly thawed

Glowing goodness outpoured

Forgetful of warm kindly host

Rebels in faith burned at post

Whole cities bombed and burnt

Lessons from the fire unlearnt

Let fiery whims to souls ignite

Storming bastille’s freedom’s fight

Raging fire of love from sparks

Consuming scorching selfish marks

(In memory of 1920 burning of Cork City)


O Lord light the burning fire of love in me for Thee that all egocentric desires be consumed and eradicated without a trace. Leave nothing behind Lord that I may be wholly Thine.
