A CANDLE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: There is a thing which in the light
Last Line: It leaves its moisture thick and thin.
Subject(s): Candles


There is a thing which in the light
Is seldom used, but in the night
It serves the maiden female crew,
The ladies, and the good-wives too.
They use to take it in their hand,
And then it will uprightly stand;
And to a hole they it apply,
Where by its goodwill it would die;
It spends, goes out, and still within
It leaves its moisture thick and thin.
