Stars Sliding - Poem by Ivor Gurney

The stars are sliding wanton through trees,
The sky is sliding steady over all.
Great Bear to Gemini will lose his place
And Cygnus over world's brink slip + fall.

Follow-my-Leader's not so bad a game.
But were it leap frog: O to see the shoots
And tracks of glory; Scorpions and Swans tame
And Argo swarmed with Bulls and other brutes.
