Alnitak Alnilam and Mintaka


I was late coming home
Walking along the foot path
Couldn't help looking up
There they were
Looking down at me
Alnitak and Mintaka
Either side of Alnilam...
Shining bright smiling silently...
They are the only ones to know
Apart from you and me
The stories we whispered
Walking down the path
About the day we have
Our own Alnilam
Walking between us
A day...
Never to come...!

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
