All summer, the forests of portugal were burning.

The Fledgling

In a nest of ashes the fledgling lies,

In a nest of ashes the fledgling lies, pink skin glistening,

In a nest of ashes the fledgling lies, pink skin glistening, wide - ignited eyes,

In a nest of ashes the fledgling lies, pink skin glistening, wide - ignited eyes, fixed upon the fire raining from the sky.

The blackened tree trunk of the eucalyptus tree

The blackened tree trunk of the eucalyptus tree stands sentinel over him in mockery,

it´s twisted branches sparkling - like torches poised for rekindling.
