First Spirit
I am this moment freed from earth.
Second Spirit
And I am a captive bound to birth.
Who art thou?

First Spirit
Flesh and blood to be
Cleave not closer unto thee.
Second Spirit
My father?
First Spirit
Yea.

A mingling breath
They drew. Then rival Life and Death
As if rebuking Love's delay
Drove each his fate-determined way.
