My feelings burn like the leaves of a fire tree.
As we drive by the road its intensity captures me.
Warm like the sun its colors did show,
Bright orange and red with its effervescent glow.
It could not hide its undeniable passion.
Shying away would be a lack of reason.
From the car window I stare filled with envy,
How I could not express my feelings like the fire tree.
