The Candle - Poem by nicola burkett

The candle flickers in the sun.
The candle burns in the light.
The candle fades at dusk.
The candle dies in the night.

    Nicola four lines that open up so much truth about the candle my thoughts go to Candle in the Wind and candles in the church candles are everywhere and you have described them so perfectly in a four lined poem just brilliant. cheers Sylvie (Report) Reply
