Where there is light, there is a shadow chasing it.

She is the ray of the sun


He is the black barrel of the gun


Light made pure


A shadows cure


But there is a night


Who answers day's tired plight


So she may rest


Then he takes up the test


To make sure she may be ready


And the sun may shine steady


Till he must retreat


Running as dawn licks his feet


But there are some places he may return


So he may await his turn


Deep in the oceans or caves


Or in the coffins in the grave


Till he answers her call


To take the mantle before she falls


Then she may sleep


And up night slowly creeps


Though he is in his domain


To see light free from pain


Is his task


So in the morn the earth may bask


In her light


Much to the satisfaction of the dark and night
