Nothing unites us with times gone by

Like the glow of candle  light.

We're gentled away to a land of dreams

In an enveloping night.

Electric light is brash  and harsh ;

It shows up every line;

Faces are softened and beautified

When the candles shine.



We climb up on the bathroom scales

And either smile or frown.

We grow up in our youthful days

And in old age we grow down!

All human-beings are measured

Right from the moment of birth.

But there are other creatures

Living on this fair earth.

Imagine a lion roaring,

Imagine a wriggling snake,

Imagine even a skittish cat,

Giving itself a shake!

If you practice zoometry,

Measuring living creatures,

Being very careful

Is one of the salient features!
