Nights of Oil

Hanukkah Candle Lighting

The nights are coming marked by light

Little twinkles in the window, darkness to defy

Memorial of an underdogs’ victorious fight

And a temple defiled newly cleansed

A single jug of oil, they say

Just enough for one single day

For eight burned by God’s grace

Until by a supply pure it was replaced
