On Being Taken for Granted


This casually tendered bit of flame---
   Think you, it scores my heart?
Or brands with certain passion there
   Its very counterpart?


Such flickering scarlet! Knew you not
   Some fiercer, candent light
For firing an intensity
   Immaculate and white?

Written by Anita Scott Coleman (1890-1960)
