Last Line: A single shining head.
Subject(s): Happiness; Hearts; Love; Romance; Joy; Delight


I LOVE bright things like candlelights
Upon a window ledge,
And beds of scarlet tulips
Aflame beneath a hedge,
A gypsy campfire glowing,
The yellow harvest moon,
And fireflies in a dusky gloam
When night has come too soon,
A maple tree that's all ablaze,
Ships' lanterns far at sea,
A burning star that leaves the sky
A trail of fire for me.

But if all these were offered me,
I know I'd choose instead—
To light my heart through darksome days—
A single shining head.
