Wax and Wick

  Wax and wick Smoke and flame Swirl within the glass Nearing the end The work is complete Blue and white-gold Dancing; flashes of orange-red From seen to unseen to seen So goes the flow of Light and power Love is the One Power Love is the Law Appearances fade like wax burned away Only …
