Transcription

Candelmas

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 though upon a maid

That to the temple came

And offered all herself to be

Wax--to feed a flame.

Poem by Sr. Mary Catherine, O.S.U. Printed for and Distributed by Will & Baumer Candle Co., Inc. Syracuse, N. Y.
