Happy Women’s Day!

Ok, the hour is a little late, but that only makes this short poem from a liberated woman of the early twentieth century all the more apt!

First Fig
My candle burns at both ends;
It will not last the night;
But ah, my foes, and oh, my friends–
It gives a lovely light!
— Edna St Vincent Millay
