Re-Draft of a Poem

Septentrion

The whisper of a wind that curls beneath the stars
brushes my cheek; the rain of light is constant
while the galaxies, all rushing, their presence withdraw
as though, from some primeval atom, they burst,
soared into life, and never stopped.
Round and round the stars speed along a crease
some strange black thing has drawn,
a symphony of circles, well mingling with well.
And I, who know no star but home,
speed through the ceaseless black of night,
no light for my path save the singing suns,
and sail the dark Septentrion out to forever's end.
