"Farewell now mountain vale and plain
Farewell now wind and frost and rain
And mist and cloud and heavens air
Ye star and moon so blinding fair
Farewell now blade and bloom and grass
That see the changing season pass
Farewell sweet earth and northern sky
Forever blessed but here we die…”

Fire whirls, sometimes known as a ‘fire devil’, can be formed when intense heat and strong winds combine, creating a tornado-like column which whips up debris and other gases.
