The Bungler by Amy Lowell

‘You glow in my heart
Like the flames of uncounted candles
But when I go to warm my hands,
My clumsiness overturns the light,
And then I stumble
Against the tables and the chairs”

Amy Lawrence Lowell (February 9, 1874 – May 12, 1925) was an American poet of the imagist school from Brookline, Massachusetts who posthumously won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1926.
