The Beginning of Nessie
The End of a Unicorn
The Start of Nothing
And the Finish of Man.
They Come out Nights
They are Lost in Days;
Never Seen by Sunlight
But by Moon Rays.
I Never Was, am Always to Be;
No One Ever Saw Me, nor Ever Will;
And Yet I am the Confidence of All
Who Live and Breathe on Earth’s Ball.
What Can You Catch, but Not Throw?
They Have no Flesh nor Feathers
Nor Scales, nor Bones,
But They have Fingers
And Thumbs of Their Own.
What are They?
