A Candle for Her Passing

I chose a new white taper, 
very slim, in a clear glass holder.
I set it near my pictures of Andrew
and the fairy mountain, the owl statue
and the stones from magical places.
I said the prayer for the dead, aloud,
as I lit the wick. For the rest of the day
it burned all the way down, until gone.
