The fire sweeps across the land
Like a swift chestnut stallion
Prancing lightly across the earth
The fire rages
Like the fire in his eyes
He stops
Then starts
Then bursts out with inhuman energy

The fire blazes on through the dry bush
Suddenly he leaps to the side
And the fire in his eyes turns to fear
But there is no hesitation
He charges on
Like the relentless blazing inferno
Crashing through the trees

The stallion's mane and tail
Stream through the air behind him
As the deep orange flames
Flicker across the night sky
The stallion's hooves lightly brush the ground
With each quick, light step
The fire's raging flames flicker
Touching the leaves
Of the tall, parched trees

Each leaves a trail of destruction
A sea of people
In awe of their grace and power
