Fire Spreading

by Madeleine Berkowitz, age 10
Fire Spreading

“Fire swirling, blooming, all over”

Red paint

Swirled out of a bucket

Onto its blanket

Of cream-colored

White

Fire swirling,

Blooming,

All over

Its blanket

Of cream-colored

White

Flowers sprouting,

Bearing crowns

And wings

Of cotton

Spreading

On its blanket

Of cream-colored

White

And after the day

Is leaving for home

Upon the blanket

Of cream-colored

White

With flower

And fire

And paint

A tired head

Is dropped

Upon

The pillow
