flamboyant

a blaze of love, then extinction, is better than a lantern glimmer that would last long years'?
when the blaze burns out.. it leaves
a huge desolate forrest of blackened
hearts, dampered down.. that cannot be re kindled...
A lantern glimmer may ignite and
burn everlasting, its embers warm the bricks of the soul,  it may smoulder in content waiting  to blaze into delight  at any moment,  such is lovers flame,
from gentle tinder and mending we keep our tender loves enthralling,
a blaze then extinction is not love...
it's transferred heat..

(a quote from a book I read in 75)
