Campfire

written by: Sue Vanderberg

 

And the thunder rumbles and the days roll by
I carry on with just a little sigh

I walk a bit further through the brush
Until I hear that familiar hush

The secrets we keep
and the miles are way too steep

The trail is cumbersome and the trees are so tall

The longer you walk the more likely you will see the leaves fall

The rocks in the river are sharp
But that’s the only place to find a carp

Long after we are gone
The storm rages on

The campfire is warm
Even if you don’t conform
