Umbras' Light

Umbras, come, regard thy Light;
for where stands Shadow, how goes Sight
without those brilliant gifted glows,
the splendor of supernal shows

- the Full Moon's concert thrilling Hills
as Silhouettes dance free of frills,
Distinctions singing with the Dark
as Luminance lives out its lark?

Likewise, Shine: abide by Night
resolving whilst vague Dreams rewrite
why Difference makes itself to last
between all gleams and dimness cast.
