Comments about Cordell Rich
The Snowflake And The Candle
Candles sizzle and pop
In an angry and desperate struggle.
Each snowflake fights and leans
To avoid the searing heat.
Until the two should collide
in one last desperate battle.
The candle anchored to its moorings
With only a wick to do its bidding.
The snowflakes path of freedom
form sea to sky to its chilly plunge.
The snowflakes gentle fall last lifted
By the hot and raising winds of fate.
One last hopeful tumble follows
Ten thousand feet of thoughtless dancing.
Then crackle or pop
As well as it may suite ...
Please don't let him steal you away.
Please don't kiss him with those lips.
Why would you hold his hands with your delicate hands?
Please don't laugh and lean on him as you walk.
And don't look at me with your brown eyes
Asking me how I'm doing when I would rather turn and walk away.
You must have forgotten everything about Me.
How you loved holding my hands.
How you loved holding me tight.
