Trim the candle's wick.

Against the spiralling darkness
become a lamp's haloing glow.

Light the candle quick,
for when even night is starless,
it will make a golden light grow.

Let firelight flick
for the dark is farthest,
longing after cock crow;
so keep the light lit
for the guiding dark is heartless.
