the nightowl said to the skylark
"I have to fly, over the deserts and plains and disappear into the open sky.
I'll miss the feel of the rain asit falls on the dry desert plains
the scent of the wind, the damp morning dew, but most of all
I'll be missing you"

the skylark said to the nightowl " the whole world sings your song
shouted from the rooftops of London, Ankara, and Hong Kong. But me, I know your heart and mind and together we've travelled long. And I know that under your black wing is the only place Ive ever belonged. And the dark is your providence and I greet the bright sun. We shape each day out of common clay and our work is never done."

the nightowl said to the skylark "I won't tell you not to mourn. But keep that spark in your soul and in you I'll be reborn. Look ahead to what will become a new world in pain of labor. The living and the dead they hang by a thread and rest with the true originators. And the dark is my providence and you greet the bright sun. My love for you is eternal and true. I am afraid my work here is done."
