Ode to Sconces (& Mark)

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
Your 20 watt bulbs can reach, and then some.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost contractor-I love thee with the breath, smiles, tears, of all my life!-and, if God choose,I shall but love thee better with every lightbulb change.
I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you.
(Apologies to Elizabeth Barret Browning )
And to Mark, for making it happen, bringing the magic, using quarters in a way punishable by law ... many, many beers.
