*** Little candle ***


“Take heed, you child, so dear and sweet,
To all, in row - how many pass,
As others come, if they compete,
What Life's paths written on a sheet
The hidden works to happen in this class!..


And often hands, so carrying as they bent,
From wedge and inks, to set the smallest title,
Where on a sheeting, doits or trifles, sent
- When mind has gone, in such recital,
Deep talk and sorts of thoughts, being their vital
Researching of this Life Scale!.. A ladder to ascent!


Among how often they are silent written,
As do the others, right about to rise
From dreamy clews, as they have wished, knitten
- These buds with depths from which their eyes
A spark of life, dear to them, left smitten
Inscribing Life a Word describing what is wise;


..And there no other face in turn what is
If not only what shines it from bright core?
Like straw threads squeezed into rolls with ease,
All-in-one thoughts; a quince to taste within a pore;
Where do they come from - where shall they go,
What's left of you, to follow?! .. Just a quizz...


Oh! But they shall pass, researchfull, elder hands,
As often either caressing a beard of crisped ages
Or, on one forehead, getting darker, fill the lands;
It's just that they are more accepting, like the sages,
In silence, deep-seated eyes to sinking words,
To suck the life in, feeling candle flame in swords!..”
