FIRE-LOGS, by                 Poet's Biography
First Line: Nancy hanks dreams by the fire
Last Line: Time now for a tall man to come.
Subject(s): Hanks, Nancy (1783-1818)

NANCY HANKS dreams by the fire;
Dreams, and the logs sputter,
And the yellow tongues climb.
Red lines lick their way in flickers.
Oh, sputter, logs.
Oh, dream, Nancy.
Time now for a beautiful child.
Time now for a tall man to come.
