"Hymn To A Lion"
Ah Leo, lordly beast cast to the sky,
Held captive in a constellation zoo,
Small wonder you the silence loud defy,
Unleash the only power left to you
And shatter midnight's peace with fearsome roar.
No longer free to roam anointed king,
Caught fast 'twixt crab and virgin's cobalt shore,
What does there now remain for you to sing?
To conquer? No more harem sworn to you,
to bring you bloodied kill so fiercely won.
Wrapped only in a cloak of icy blue
You pace the night abandoned by the sun,
But shower us with stardust glorious
To prove yourself once more victorious.

The final lines refer to the Leonids, a meteor shower that occurs annually in November. It is associated with the comet Tempel-Tuttle, which appears to radiate from the constellation Leo.
