Auriga, Jupiter, and a crescent moon
Owned a very early eastern sky
As lowly hung the Dipper's northern spoon
With a brace of meteors blasting by!
And Cassiopeia, above it all,
Was regal on her meridian throne
Watching stars shoot in their final fall
Of plasma transmutation from stone!
The Pleiades, so coquettishly aglow
As seven stellar sisters so divine,
Embraced my mortal psyche, so far below,
With the sibling light of their rise and shine...
First to withdraw into daybreak's beams
Of Aurora mastering midnight regimes!
