By Edna St Vincent Millay
My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes and oh, my friends-
It gives a lovely light!
I never met her in person but knew her through a marvellous Facebook group, of which she was a mainstay.
You can read about her in her own words here. I think this post in particular has something to say to all of us regardless of the state of our health.
Thank you Issy.
