Time for another poem

The keeper of the flame
Paid no attention to the fire
Only a few cinders remained.
A cold night coming
Must feed the fire
Watching to be sure
There will be heat
Come morning.
Stoked the stove
Eating chocolate
Sipping brandy
While combustion roars
And the fire can be banked.
Inattention has it's own penalties
Or rewards

What a lovely image your poem evokes; I could skip the brandy--maybe Bailey's Irish Cream, instead?--but the chocolates and warm fire make me envious.

Echoing Oscar, "Another good one Lilo Thank you"

Luv the poem. Especially the first line " The keeper of the flame". It sets the tone of the poem.

You are so good in awakening memories, I can even smell the fire and a pot of grog would stay hot on the "Kachelofen".
