Flame Eternal, Light the Ages

       Flame Eternal, Light the Ages



          Flicker minute gleaming dot,

          falter not upon your path


          towards the tallow – soft as putty –

          that is abode for knowledge.


          Set free imagination’s spark,

          release debate’s intensive heat,


          increase the flaming incandescence

          which is controlled by wisdom’s


         presence. Touch the waxen form

         and glow resplendently in


         darkness. Weld yourself to truth

         alone – become a lamp that


         burns past ignorance. Be flame

         eternal; light the ages.
