Little Lantern

Inspired by this, There Is A Light In Me I write this:

Come alive little lantern
You are the supernova
Dreaming of enclosure

You are not the isenglas,
Nor muslin waxed translucent
Nor thinshaved horn panel
That will melt in your magnificence!

What then is the lesson
Of eternal flame in frail flesh contained?
