Candle

Flickering yellow as dusk falls down
Candles in their stands await
An interlude of sweet perfume
As family, true to form, runs late

They still burn there in presence resolute
Setting mood and atmosphere
Regardless of company their purpose reigns
Combined with music to bring cheer

And later, when victuals and glass have cleared
Their yellow flickering remains
Mellowed to pleasant conversation
And melodic musical refrains
