'T was invisible yet,
I felt it wrap the shining grain,
making its light to flicker in the wind
in the open edge of the window
where he lay unhidden, yet,
untouched; a virgin!
He is gloomy, but he is not a loner,
he has companions, like him struggling
to invade the power, that's too strong,
unstoppable, yet, harmless and kind,
respectful to the integrity of the candles:
to remain as they are, and to melt;
burnt out and just fade!
