Such gorgeous array

Such gorgeous array. We stood together
watching the beacon fires, in their blessëd fury,
burn bright upon the far limestone shore.
Her eyes were intent upon the flames,
magnificent in the uncertain night. 
Slight breezes made small ripple-waves
which caught fire in the raging light, 
then slipped into secret shadows
to whisper tales of unforgotten grief.
She reached down and struck the water
with a gentle wrath. The fire-light 
became confused upon the lake. 
She faded away under the autumn stars
and was gone.
