"The fire came through with roar and noise - awesome power and might
Somehow we found the strength to stay - that long and anxious night
At dawn the sound of crashing rocks, the fall of dying trees
We looked and saw the forest and the farms brought to their knees . . .
Fallen to ashes, fallen to ashes - all that beauty gone, fallen to ashes . . . .
So summer passed and autumn came, with days of mist and frost
And welcome rain began to fall - we grieved for what was lost
And the land began to lift it's head to meet the falling rain
And we began to find the strength and will to start again Out of the ashes . . . .
