    “Fire At Midnight”

    I believe in fires at midnight —
    when the dogs have all been fed.
    A golden toddy on the mantle —
    a broken gun beneath the bed.
    Silken mist outside the window.
    Frogs and newts slip in the dark —
    too much hurry ruins the body.
    I’ll sit easy … fan the spark
    kindled by the dying embers of another working day.
    Go upstairs … take off your makeup —
    fold your clothes neatly away.
    Me, I’ll sit and write this love song
    as I all too seldom do —
    build a little fire this midnight.
    It’s good to be back home with you.

    Ian Anderson, Jethro Tull
