Candle - Poem by Rebekah Mcwilliam

Through the day a candle
really has no need,
no need to give off light,
to give us people sight
but when it comes to the night,
it shall have its stage,
to dance a nd flicker,
burn and shimmer,
until we go to bed
then it shall be dead,
until its next performance
it shall wait.

    Nice write Rebekah. Or should I say, 'cousin'? ?
