A favorite poem of mine with which to start your week...

I memorized this poem a long time ago, and have found it to apply in my life more often than I'd like...but the ending always makes me chuckle.

First Fig

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.

-Edna St. Vincent Millay
