.5. Old Flame

Flicker candle in the night
Take the shade and make it bright
Casting shadows just in sight
Sparkle crystals with your light

Flicker candle orange glow
Make up shapes that we all know
Put me on a picture show
Reflect a small thing make it grow

Flicker candle in the breeze
Caused by someone as they sneeze
Erotic figures start to tease
One more flicker if you please

Flicker candle in your range
On the things we all find strange
Giving interest as they change
Within the walls of my old grange

Flicker candle if you may
In your special candle way
My home is yours for you to stay
Rest now candle as night meets day

    Such fun this one was, David! Loved it and brought back my childhood when my brother and me would let our imaginations go wild at such things. Thank you! Another 10!

    Warm Wishes,

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
