The first pure notes span the night like a shining arrow.
Other voices joining in, like a spill of stars across the sky.
The darkness blooms.
We join together, joining voices, burnishing our music.
When we get it right, we kindle the stars that light us home.
In showers of starlight we sing like wolves.
Wolf song summons, binds together, announces intent, celebrates victory.
