Evening Lamp!

You appear at this cross-
Upon the rising flame of earthen lamp
Lighted- in my evening prayer,
Flickering and steady with the wind!

I see you protect this pen;
With the dazzling shield-
When darkness delves deep into it-
Held high; with all kindness in reward!

Joyous- for this journey starts there.
And I reserve this flame for ages-
For my soul finds its temple,
That will go down generation, with undying luster;
Tomorrow -when they discover themselves in darkness!

To-...5.. This was written in this in darkness...... Light the earthen lamp, that won't flicker....
I find a eventful day brought to halt at the arrival of my guest! .....

and the lines are the witness, with the silent dazzling flame....
