The Light

It didn't last very long

Just a blink of History's eye

A flash in a pan

But oh, how brightly it burned -

How beautiful the flame!

Millions came out to watch

As star after star burst into glory

Each taking a turn

To dazzle and shine

And amaze us all

Till the fire slowed its dance

And flickered softly

Casting its light on us

As we warmed ourselves

In its comforting glow.

The few remaining embers

Faithfully share their warmth

As we gather closer

Trying to soak up the last

Of the comfort they offer

And strain to see clearly

Through the shadows.

In the morning

We'll keep the Light with us as we go.
