The candles the chandeliers make,
To float on a flower strewn lake,
In a crackled glass bowl,
Are preferred, on the whole,
To those you blow out on a cake.

Now what is the label or handle,
For a fella who makes us a candle?
It's a bit cavalier,
To call him chandelier,
And to hang him up might cause a scandal.

Ah, a chandler's the fellow by trade,
By whom all our candles are made.
And if he's called a chandler,
Then maybe a spandler,
Is a fellow who makes us a splayde.

I hope that each tradefellow earns
A good wage for the hours he burns,
For the candles that glow,
And the splaydes for gateaux,
That wish you such happy returns.

             Hug, HUG, and maybe another HUG,

                            Jack Halyard
