With Summer’s heat and lack of rain,
Trees and grass dried on our mountain’s terrain.

As Fall approached, with relief we did sigh,
Maybe the fire threat had passed us by.

September 9th would bring to pass
The fire that would take what lay in its path

We worried and watched…helplessly
As firefighters and planes fought…desperately

To save the mountain, the cabins and trees
All most of us could do was get down on our knees

And pray with all the faith that we had
For minimal losses and damage not too bad

By the time the fire would be contained
There would more than 15,000 acres that were fire stained

Spring will arrive bringing grasses green
The burn line will no longer the hillside stain
And the skeletal trees will be the only evidence to remain
