One Candle. Poem by Ann Beard

One Candle.

Rating: 5.0

One candle offers ample light
two candles flicker twice as bright
But if a draft plucks one in spite,
one candle lives to mourn the night.

You can say just as much in three of four lines as in a full-blown poem... and still get the message across.

I felt a little sad reading this poem because it gives such a sharp image of loss. Beautifully written Ann.....10
