Fighting Fire

The fires have come

A planet is burning

An agony of dry heat

Blown by the winds

That would not listen

Fueled by neglect and greed

Sometimes people are brave

They stand solid and ready

Defending

Risking all that they are

To protect the precious

Beyond all duty

There is a place

For those who give

In full measure

Here our hearts

Beat with gratitude

Awe beyond understanding

It is not too late

We hope we pray

Clean the air

Let the forests breathe

Honor the lost

Help fight the fire
