Sirius - Poem by Anthony Weir

Sirius shines
the dog star
low in the sky
the brightest star
revolving round
a small dark sun
which no man has ever seen
like a body
round a soul
or words
around a man
or a man
around his words
or a man
around a man
or words
around a soul
like a body
which no man has ever seen
a small dark sun
revolving round
the brightest star
low in the sky
the dog star
Sirius shines

    Excellent. Like a helix viewed from the polar axis it shines in a perpetual circle or ascenant luminosity.
