The Lion leaps the God of War

As the Archer rises

To chase the Scorpion

And the Swan, the Eagle and the Lyre ride high

Signalling summer

And inviting me

To balmy nights beneath their light

The chaos of billions

Of balls of blazing gas

So far away

And the dance of our neighbors

In their cosmic waltz around the sun



In patterns

The stars and planets

Become my beautiful friends
