Candle


it is addressed thusly:
An ode.
it reads:
The child watches the dancing candle-flame
Waving as though to say hello
On the wick a bright hand without any name
A wave does she then bestow?
Or does she watch it still and silently
What is to a child still a mystery
Living creature, sword turning to and fro
Eden's flaming door, flung open suddenly?
