The Little Dipper


I looked into the night sky

Once, early this spring

And discovered the Little Dipper

Rising into the heavens

From just above my roof


For thousands of years

The rich and the poor

The wise and the dumb

Have all looked in wonder

At these same few stars


Blinding them, gently

Then guiding their vision

Into the heavens

Far above their earth


So it feels nice that I

Can share in that wonder

Contemplating the same

Hidden gorgeous mysteries
