Question

Guest

Friends together

Of different race

But of the same land

Two friends of ancient times

Hold the keys of old

To the craft of muse

Friends of different flair

Both are living,

but one was animate, the other...not

Ebony and ivory

FINALLY! You got it!!

Explanation:

There are two of them

Of different race--Ebony's black, Ivory's white

But of the same land--Both can be found in Africa (Elephant tusks and the Gaboon Ebony species)

Two of ancient times

Hold the keys of old--pianos used to be used of ivory and ebony keys

To the craft of the Muses--piano: music

They are of different flair--ivory's better known for making piano keys, ebony's known for being very dense and tough

Both are from the living--ebony trees are alive, and ivory comes from elephant tusks

but one was animate, the other...not--elephants are animate, trees are simply living

great job Qesh! :thumbsup:
