Ursa Major

I watched them dance the other night,
A ballet I had seen a thousand times,
Dancing on the midnight stage,
Miles beyond what I could see,
The choreography had not changed,
Full of batterie and tour en l’air.
No, time to them means so little,
For night after night they must perform.
A dancer appears to fall from grace,
Quick, say a wish.

Ursa means bear in Latin.

Good to see you post something! :)

AJ, glad it impressed you twice.

R, I think I knew that. From my window growing I could watch that constellation for hours. A few weeks ago we were outside talking on a clear night and I found it again!
