Children playing, next to the old oak tree

Suddenly misunderstood – moaning –

The field somewhat heaven like


Quick movements of the hands

Flip onto the bed

Wheat cushioning and peaceful

Tip and it starts


The sky turns grey

Striking thunder claps

Penetrate the barrier of sound

Fire scratches the field


Now nothing is left

Rain has broken the fire,

The fire has ravaged the wheatlands

The bones of the children left back


Wind blows lushessly through the air

Desperate words fill the sky

The memories, the children hold

Mi amore.

Wheat-lands calenture
