A wondrous woman is but a fortuitous flame
Burning brazen, blue and bright.
‘A’ by any other given name,
She is a decorance and a delight.
She is the most fantastic fire
Of this and any new-born day.
Can you see how she dares to serenely inspire
From within both the passion and the play?
The words are rarely if ever spoken
To whom they are really meant.
A living mortal soul becomes tormented, tortured and eventually broken
By the discourse and elasticity of discontent.
Such a burning flame faintly flickers
In the gentle autumnal breeze.
Alas, modesty taints, tempts and trickers
A humble man to his knees.
She is, for all intents and purposes, the Firegirl
Who no one can know but me.
She is the intelligible irony of a tumbled twirl
And the tantric torch to set me free.
Oh Firegirl, Firegirl, I bellow your name
Because you are who so surely are.
You can burn and you can enflame
This heart and never leave a scar.
This is what a woman does
When she goes inside a man’s abode.
She opens windows and doors, thus
And cracks the impossible code.
There is no smoke without fire
And there can be no fire without a spark.
There is no passion ever without desire
Or an unlit beacon in the dark.
The Firegirl has gone beyond the ritual tinder
And decrees the essence of a dream.
She is oblivious to the chasm of the cinder,
The Firegirl is everything that she doth seem.
