Thanks SF...I can't imagine doing that sort of job. Once I get sleepy, I'm out.

Looks like FF's house is on the corner of Main and Oakland. Cemetery one block north. There are RR tracks both E and W of the house. My guess is the gypsys were near the tracks to the east. "...sometimes I think I can still hear it when the wind is out of the east." Probably near that creek.



Maybe he is saying the blaze is a half mile east of some tracks?

I think that ff wants us to think about what kind of confident adventurous spirit it takes for a little boy to sneak out of his house alone at all hours of the night. Walk through a cemetery sneak through some fields and hide in the grass like a little peeping Forrest. Someone who did that would be a hero to the kids in "The Sandlot" or "A Christmas Story." His parents were practically Ward and June Cleaver. Thats the same kind of guts/indestructibility it takes to grab a helicopter and go playing behind enemy lines. How much do you have to think like that to understand his little poem?
