“First Fig” by Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892 – 1950)


Here’s an excerpt from a #poem, entitled, “First Fig” by Edna St. Vincent Millay:

“It gives a lovely light.”


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.

By TDarris
