Candlemas Poem

My mother-in-law shared this poem with me several years ago.  This morning, a member of our homeschool group shared it via email.

Our Lady of the Candles

I have seen a candle lit.
I have watched the slow
Consuming of the strength of it
That a light may glow.

And I have thought upon a maid
That to the temple came
And offered all herself to be
Wax -- to feed a flame.
~ Sr. Mary Catherine, O.S.U. ~
