Fireside Dreams © R. Craig Collins, 1995, 2005/6
| The logs crackle, pop, and settle,
the glow warms up the night;
outside the snow flakes lightly dance,
inside it is just right.
inside, a steamy mug;
the blanket outside is moon white,
inside, we're curled upon the rug.
gazing beyond the trees;
getting lost in the view of the stars,
as music colors the breeze.
all nature reigns above;
while within the cabin, just two,
lost in our spring of love.
settled among the pines;
celebrate our love again, sweet-
if only in our minds.
until we are no more;
I want to spend my life with you,
the one I'll ere adore.
