“Because the road was steep and long
And through a dark and lonely land,
God set upon my lips a song
And put a lantern in my hand.

Through miles on weary miles of night
That stretch relentless in my way
My lantern burns serene and white,
An unexhausted cup of day.

O golden lights and lights like wine,
How dim your boasted splendors are.
Behold this little lamp of mine;
It is more starlike than a star!”

 

“Love’s Lantern,” by Joyce Kilmer (1886-1918). Illustration, “Willow,” by Adam Oehlers, 2016.
