Sister Light

Darkness rests her weary head
And turns to Sister Light
"See what I have wrought here
In shadows, shapes in the night"

Sister Light looks around
And says "But Darkness dear
There are none who can see
Without light to make it clear."

Saying this she raises her face
And light shines all around
Casting illumination on every stone
Leeching the darkness from the ground

Darkness lets her head droop low
And speaks in a voice deep and mellow
"Sister mine, what you have done
Such harsh light, the ground now fallow"

"There is no art here any more."
With those words she stands and leaves
