torquill: Doctor Wilson, thoughtful (wilson)
[personal profile] torquill

Clear and warm, unwavering, upright still
The candle burns within, and disregards
All storm and tempest weathered by the will,
No need of walls built round the soul to guard;
The flame endures, and shines in endless dark
A twin to any star, though gentler light,
As much the guide to every wand'ring bark
As that which spurred a bardic pen to write.
It burns alone, but when infrequent comes
The cup of friendship, clean and free of art,
The light is caught and there the flame becomes
A tiny sun, to cheer the days apart.
No other fire need prick the depths of night;
The breath of life dost keep the candle bright.
