Orions Lofty Belt


Stung,
twice,
not to stride
upon the scorpion

A single star
hangs on
ample to clutch
the falling trousers of Orion

Place
me in the night sky
Authority higher than I
there it cannot attack

But
lend me a sword
for my battle dress
as the night people stare

Let
me gaze below
to ponder the city lights
search for answers

What with all the
probes darting the Arctic Lights?
the solutions are not here

Let me seek
myself
from the Heavens looking down

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
