The Thursday Poem


Young Woman Reading by a Window by Delphin Enjolras


First Fig

My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends
It gives a lovely light!

Edna St Vincent Millay
(22nd February 1892 - 19th October 1950)

from the book: Poem for the Day One
