“Burns” for Robert Burns’ Day

Here is a short poem on the “burns” topic, though not related to Robert Burns, and yet inspired in relation to Robert Burns Day, which is celebrated on 25th January every year.

***

Burning with fear

That fire may die out


Burning for fear

That tears will fade off


Burning with fever

That heartpace will slow down

and burn out

for fear.
