Who or what does the following riddle describe?

The end of one story, the start of another
The dark hour before the dawn
In robes of black we perform this ritual
An event many mourn
At the summit of Thoth we meet
And as the proceedings do begin
One life of each is signed away
We are cloaked in colours dim

Graduation

The end of one story, the start of another

It marks the end of student life

The dark hour before the dawn

An end before a new start

In robes of black we perform this ritual

Usually black gown are used

An event many mourn

Many wants to remains students

At the summit of Thoth we meet

For all the knowledge accumulated during one s student life

And as the proceedings do begin

When the graduation start

One life of each is signed away

Each receive a signed diploma

We are cloaked in colours dim

For the different colours meaning (graduate, undergraduate)

  • $\begingroup$ Good job, I hope it wasn't too easy. My first attempt at making a riddle $\endgroup$ – user22000 May 12 '16 at 3:44
  • $\begingroup$ Sorry, it may be a little late for a response to your comment but the reference to Thoth was extremely restrictive in the choice of possible answers. But anyway, I think it was a good first attempt. Keep up the good work. $\endgroup$ – Bougret Jun 6 '16 at 5:27
