You may see me in various colours
In different shapes too;
Such as tall, round, flat and short
Gaze at me! And try to recall
My original colour and shape;
The adorable snow white and shape;
In tender and long cylinder form.
Give me a spark and I give you a flame
Soothing in colour, heat and light and in line.
To give you light I absorb part of heat,
Nevertheless, I am delighted in giving you joy and light.
In yellow, orange, green purple and blue.
People light me in churches before the deity;
In hotels, you enjoy dinner with me;
For birthday celebration, I am
Indispensable when you turn me into numbers.
I give you light, not very
Powerful, long or strong though;
I toil hard and melt my body and extinguish
Without causing you pain, and in the end, I vanish.
