A Brief List, Which Should Be Slightly Longer, of Things Worth Living for

The sound of rain inside a tent,
   A cloudless English summer sky,
A promise kept, a letter sent,
   And knowing those we hate will die.

The memory of a childhood place,
   A lazy morning spent in bed,
A loyal dog, a friendly face,
   And laughing when our foes are dead.

The comfort of a favourite book,
   The friendships time can never quell,
A gentle breeze, a babbling brook,
   And visions of those flames in Hell.
