A glittering candle flame
A candle flame does not flutter
and is not extinguished
for it is determined to glitter
and not to be tarnished!
Said “Dear devout
Halt a moment and hark!
Here is a blemish-less monk
even in the dark!!”
Candle flame to monk
A candle flame fluttered and vanished
for, it wished not to be tarnished.
Said, "Ye monk, mind your deeds black
Character is what a man does dark!"
