A Lantern

A curled cat
On a firewood box
A comforting warmth
Is coming from the stove
 
Yet water to the sauna,
I carry firewood to the corner
I let the longing sneak quietly
 
I lit a lantern when it gets dark
I lift it to a hook on the porch
Maybe the light can be seen far in the dark
And maybe it leads you to the path
 
I lit a lantern when it gets dark
I lift it to a hook on the porch
Maybe the light can be seen far in the dark
And maybe it leads you to the path
To home1
 
I press my face
To an old scarf
I close my eyes
When I recognize the scent
 
The work has been done
I stay up by the flame
Very soon everything will be in place
 
I lit a lantern...
