I don't know, but a couple things come to mind that FF mentioned: 1) brick houses meant money, 2) his family like others, only better. I don't know why I put these things in a relationship with that, but they always come to mind.

It's Titled "Second Fig" and written by Millay.
Forrest has it in TTOTC on page 136 word for word.

"First Fig" by Millay goes like this;

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!

Now doesn't that sound like Forrest's writing here from page 141 of TTOTC,

Now I feel that my father is sitting on the edge of a cloud
somewhere watching. If he knows everything about me he's pretty
busy lighting candles, some of them on both ends.
