Of Candlelight and Anchors (assignment?)

While I was studying commercial art, I was given an assignment to turn text into a piece of art, and the results still hang in my office. I used a poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay for that piece. It's a poem that resonates within the heart of every harried college student - or teacher. Come to think of it, this poem could probably be named our national motto.

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.
