Earth Meets Fire - Dennis Pearne

    She rode upon night's beauty
    godiva in a dream
    sometimes played the waif
    other times a queen
    at first he thought her silly
    regarded her with mirth
    but he found in that chameleon
    the salt of the earth

    Her steady touch inspires trust
    he fights to draws dreams out of dust
    he learns her faith,
    she learns his will
    earth meets fire,
    hearts stand still

    He stalked around the city
    he wore it like a glove
    he fancied him a warrior
    in politics and love
    never lacking in direction
    never lacking in resolve
    but a cynic hid inside him
    cast a fog around it all
