ORION: A PERSPECTIVE for third to tenth

Past harmless comets, a bear yet stands,
High over warm berths watch old legends spar,
This hunter knows how a night can expand
For I faced Ursa Major by tracking stars.

Sagittarius kneels, his stance is too still,
The mighty centaur intensely implores,
But this bear rages on, forever will,
Shining its white fangs in a soundless roar.

Eternal this struggle, endless this night,
I grieve the absence of flesh and bone,
While clouds gather, rays mass in delight,
Myth remains, unyielding and alone.

No pardon or rest from these constellations.
Gazers, pray for me, always, Orion.
