By Candle

Poem 27. This one is from 20 years ago when we lived in New York City. Sending you love and candlelight.

By Edith Hope Bishop, April 2003

one candle in a city apartment
after the turn of the twenty-first century
before dark even
before he gets home
one tiny ancient flame
saying / believe in this
and there is such a thing as history
and a promise
you can feel it/
