Pictures Made of Starlight
By Haley Welch
Stars in the night sky, shining bright,
Some forming Virgo The Virgin, tall and lean,
Another Cygnus The Swan, swimming in the moonlight.
Then there's Cancer The Crab, bold and mean,
Snapping his big red claws,
A grouchy creature, but a sight to be seen!
But Hydra The Sea Serpent comes and gobbles up the crab in his great jaws,
Then he throws a piece to Hercules,
Who stands back and watches with awe.
Cassiopeia The Queen sits back and laughs with ease,
Reclined in her chair,
Watching the two, hardly interested in what she sees.
But who should come running but Gemini The Twins, sweet and fair,
Chasing one another,
Skipping and laughing through the night air.
