moments of discouragement, defeat,
or even despair, there are always
certain things to cling to.
things usually: remembered laughter,
the face of a sleeping child, a tree
in the wind—in fact, any reminder
of something deeply felt or dearly
man is so poor as not to have many
of these small candles.
they are lighted, darkness goes away—and
a touch of wonder remains."
