Only the shadow of a shadow

Only the shadow of a shadow
marked where the white bird fell.
Only the echo of an echo
sounded the unicorn step.
When Dark had stifled the affairs of man,
the mythical beast arose.
Of Shadow born, to Echo wed,
the breeding darkness woke to find itself
and built the Earth out of its loneliness.
And, lest it be too generous to mankind,
invented Memory.
