"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

She's lovely. I can't burn my candle at both ends anymore. I miss that light.

Oh, First Fig. I love that poem. That passage is permanent in my mind as is Robert Frost - '...and miles to go before I sleep.'
