Three brothers share a family sport: a non-stop marathon.

The oldest one is fat and short and trudges slowly on.

The middle brother’s tall, slim, and keeps a steady pace.

The youngest runs just like the wind, speeding through the race.

“He’s young in years, we let him run,” The other brothers say “Cause though he’s surely number one, he’s second, in some way.”

middle will be minute hand
and youngest will be seconds hand,

I'm something. I'm nothing.
I am short. I am tall.
When you fall at your sport, then I stumble and fall.
I have never been seen beneath a new moon.
I thrive in the evening but vanish at noon.
I am lighter than air, I weigh less than a breath;
darkness destroys me, and light is my death.
What am i?
