I've never really understood this analogy. Don't meteors FALL from the sky in rapid DESCENT? Buzzword bingo, all of it.

They also fly from one end of the sky to the other in a brilliant flash if you see a meteor shower. Meteoric is the speed and energy, rise is the direction.

First Fig
by Edna St. Vincent Millay

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.


I knew I'd get to use my English degree eventually.

I even named a beer after the second part of the poem which is also delightful:

Second Fig
by Edna St. Vincent Millay

Safe upon the solid rock the ugly houses stand:
Come and see my shining palace built upon the sand!
