Firecracker
gallard

Galliano your Firecracker is in decline  
 1
and with summer spent,  
 2
your orange wing has been eclipsed,    
 3
down dusty lanes  
 4
sandals over shoulders  
 5
there's a new current  
 6
in fields of resistively  
 7
bales of straw    
 8
and corn flowers share  
 9
your sense of  resonance  
 10
lodge your protests.
 11
But remember you are strong  
 12
Galliano your Firecracker  
 13
was more than life  
 14
do not weep its demise  
 15
but marvel for its existence.
