     “I Shall Light A Candle of Understanding in Thine Heart Which Shall Not Be Put Out”

I shall light.

First debts to pay and fences to mend, lay to rest the wounded past, foes disguised as friends.

I shall light a candle of understanding

Cease the training of impossible hedges round this life for as fast as you sow them, serendipity’s thickets will appear and outgrow them.

I shall light a candle of understanding in thine heart.

All things in their place then, in this many-chambered heart. For each thing a place and for HIM a place apart.

I shall light a candle of understanding in thine heart which shall not be put out.

By the hand that lit the candle. By the never to be extinguished flame. By the candle-wax which wind-worried drips into candle wings luminous and rare. By the illumination of that candle exit, death, and fear and doubt, here love and possibility within a lit heart, shining out.
