    articles

    There is a song called "On the wings of the night". I wonder would it be correct to remove the articles so that it should be "On wings of night" and while I am pretty sure that it would be OK to remove "the" before "wings", I am not sure whether it would be OK to deprive "night" of the "the"? Does On wings of night make sense to you?

    It makes about as much sense as the original; not very much.
