“Magic is always impossible,” said the magician. “It begins with the impossible and ends with the impossible and is impossible in between. That is why it is magic.”

– The Magician from The Magician’s Elephant


Sun is setting
Darkness comes
We patiently lie and wait

A blanket beneath us
And soon above us
A vast blanket of stars

And if the day must end
To see the their light
Let night come

So clear and bright
They burn for us
Gone before we see them

Let tonight remind you
So you won’t forget
This you should know

That if a star must die
To make your dreams come true
Let mine fall
