We Say That He Brought Down Fire

 A science teacher explains: A shooting star has nothing to do with a star |  Parenting News,The Indian Express


We say that long ago, in ages of ages, we had no Fire.

We sat that the Horned looked down from the hearth of Thunder and saw us cold, and in darkness.

We say that he stole the Fire of the Gods, and came down from Heaven like a falling star.

We say that he gave us that Fire, the Fire of the Gods.

We say that this was the First Kindling.

We say that this was the Making of us.

We say that every kindling is that First Kindling come again.

We say that every kindling is for us a Making-Anew.

We say that he brought down Fire.

We say that this was the Witch-Fire, and he the Father of Witches.

We say this. That's what we say.

Poet, scholar and storyteller Steven Posch was raised in the hardwood forests of western Pennsylvania by white-tailed deer. (That's the story, anyway.) He emigrated to Paganistan in 1979 and by sheer dint of personality has become one of Lake Country's foremost men-in-black. He is current keeper of the Minnesota Ooser.
