As It Was…

with ‘Vincent’ then, so it is with me now…

My Candle burns at both ends

It will not last the night

But ah, my foes and oh, my friends

It gives a lovely light!

-Edna St. Vincent Millay  (“A Few Figs From Thistles,” 1920)

I’ll be back when I get a new candle. Peace out lovely scribes.

  1. I love the poem, I think you might remember that.

    Shame not to have you around, but we all need a new candle here and there.
    Hope to see you in those other places..

    Peace and hugs 😉
