Teacher gift ~ a candle
(Clara Thurston)

Here is a poem that I have that is related to candles and sharing our light. Give a candle and this poem to your teachers.

"A candle is but a simple thing,

It starts with just a bit of string.

Yet dipped and dipped with patient hand,

It gathers wax upon the strand.

Until complete and snowy white,

It gives at last a lovely light.

Life seems so like that bit of string;

Each deed we do, a simple thing.

Yet, day by day, if on life's strand,

We work with patient heart and hand,

It gathers joy, Makes dark days bright,

And gives at last a lovely light.
