A Spark of Fire - அக்னிக் குஞ்சொன்று

A spark of fire did I see.
In a forest, I hid it in the hollow of a tree.
Burnt to a cinder was the forest.
In its rage, is there
a difference between a spark or a blaze?

Update: corrected with inputs from Arvind.
தமிழ்:
அக்னிக் குஞ்சொன்று கண்டேன்
அதை அங்கோர் காட்டிலோர் பொந்திடை வைத்தேன்
வெந்து தணிந்தது காடு
தழல் வீரத்தில் குஞ்சென்றும் மூப்பென்றுமுண்டோ.

Also Chen - can you give the Tamil title as well for each one so when I go searching in a book I will know what I am looking for?
