Shadow said, “Leave me alone, Sun.”
But the Sun stayed until the last
breath of the Shadow was undone.
After a while, the Moon brought out
his loom, weaving a web of
shadows to catch the dark again,
painting Night across the Earth’s skin.
Then Earth said, “Leave me alone, Night.”
So Night went away, at the first sight of Light.
