Light and darkness
Like night and day
Cannot coexist

Except at dawn and dusk
When they paint the sky a riot of colors
Usher out the stars, usher in the stars
By turn

Don't look at the  marmalade skies  
Dotted with delicate stars
And imagine you can make that
Last forever

No one has ever caught light
In the grip of their fist
Except to be burned
And to extinguish the light

Darkness reigns again

You feed a lamp
Clean the soot
Trim the dead wick
Increase its power

You light up your world
