Candle-burning time

In the window up the stairs

A candle burns tonight.

Perhaps for love, or luck, or cares —

Or for its lovely light,

She asks her wav’ring candlelight

To be no desperate call;

But rather, in the warm spring night

To light her desk and wall.

And yet, she sits and looks outside,

As if expecting one

Fair prince to take her to his side,

When candle-burning’s done.
