I accept the candle handed to me
out of the dark where I hear
the thunder of Roman troops.
The candle is lit, floating down
from over the heads of the fighters
against Rome. I place it
in a candle holder and set the light
beside my bed. In its ray
the thunderous troops recede.
I pick up a history of the Jews
and read. My story.
