Fullness of Times: Poetry

Parable of Gossip
Gregory Scot Collins
Saturday, 3 February 1990
A candle burned steadily
in the stillness of the night.
And though its flame was tiny,
it gave off plenty light.
Then once a breeze was thrust in
through a window slightly cracked,
And caused that flame to flickeró
unexpected it attacked!
But courage had that candle,
for it held on through the fight,
And stood itself uprightly
once again to share it's light.
The wind it was relentless,
and again dealt out its plight!
So that flame and all its goodness
simply faded out of sight.
