The Agreement


 The Moon from The Tarot of Why by Ron Campbell

The Agreement

Night owns the sky but rents the stars from Day.

Day leases shadows from Night but has a binding contract with the sun.

Every Night owes Day one morning.

Every Day pays Night back with an evening.

Day has a limited partnership with Night to illuminate the moon.

Night promises Day to keep its interference with the sun to a bare minimum.

At dusk Night forecloses on day.

At dawn Day renews its option.

Day retains all rights to its fame.

Night is allowed its mystery.
