The Guardian

Orion is an archer,

and all alone he walks the skies

night after night, club in one hand,

bow in the other.

Can you see his bright belt

sparkling like diamonds on clear winter nights?

Do you feel him watching over you,

ready to leap to your defense?

    So nice to read a poem about that familiar night-sky sight.
    There is such a connective feeling every time I recognize the dot-to-dog image.
