A Spark Of Fire

A spark of fire I did see
Which there , in a forest tree hole I'd stowed
Burned and ashed was the forest
For the flame's intensity, is there something like a spark or a blaze ?

i saw the young baby fire, i put it in the hole of the tree, the whole forest has burnt and got calmed, in fire what is young and old? When Bharathi had written about the freedom, he wrote this beautiful poem. The meaning of the poem is very simple, for any revolution we need not have the big fire, just a spark of fire is just enough.
