Bring your candle to glitter again by =Itti

“Found poetry” (or “blackout poetry”) is a type of poetry created by taking words, phrases, and sometimes whole passages from other sources and reframing them as poetry by making changes in spacing and/or lines (and consequently meaning), or by altering the text by additions and/or deletions. (From Wikipedia.)Text reads:unlock the moonlight,forge a chain,bring your candle to glitter again.This one was a bit different. Once I’d thought of “unlock the moonlight, forge a chain”, for some reason the cadence of what I had so far made me want to look for a rhyme. And then I had to make it go round in a circle I think this is my favourite so far. I like that it could be metaphorical or literal (obviously not real-world literal, but fantasy literal) and I like the way the rhythm (and rhyme) makes it sound like a spell or a chant of some kind.

Text reads:

bring your candle to glitter again.
