-beautiful people have that gleam in their eye;

They’re a beacon of joy, the Blue of the Sky.

They are the Daylight of the Sun, the alluring

Shades of Night; they are the goodness of Good,

the rightness of Right! So with the fondness of Fond,

Our journey must part; we bid you Good-Night

With Love in our Heart!
