Candle Power


A flickering candle called my name
At first I thought what a shame
For such a candle to waste its glow

How it knew me I don’t know
And then I caught its wonderful smell
Little did I know that I was under its spell

A sneaky breeze blew out the flame
But just before it again called my name
I quickly followed its smoky trail

It led me to a rusty half filled pail
Half heartedly I snuck a glance
And on the water’s surface I saw a dance

Two nimble creatures danced and wiggled
They looked so cute I suppressed a giggle
And all too soon the scene was gone

As the creatures bowed and began to run
Carrying a sign that said “I hope you had fun”
In return I thanked the candle for its spell
And hoped its glow would continue to go well

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
