Poetry Friday: Light the Festive Candles

December 11th, 2009

Hanukkah starts tonight, so here is a children’s poem for the occasion by Aileen Fisher.

Light the Festive Candles
by Aileen Fisher


Light the first of eight tonight—
the farthest candle to the right.

Light the first and second, too,
when tomorrow’s day is through.
