Cassiopeia


Floating with ‘his’ head in the stars
He wears such placid demeanour
Looking to the constellation
His heart hopes but to redeem her

For ‘she’ is one of vanity
And that of unrivalled beauty
Yet burning bright, she owns the sky
Themed era, continuity

Although her presence visible
Forming a “W” or crown
Cassiopeia’s destined future
Twas ‘pon a chair, upside down

Perhaps there is some truth
Alive and fresh within the tale
So vain, perceived as vulgar
Now justice, Beauty has fared

As time has simply elapsed
Decrepit memories linger strong
Cassiopeia forever remains
Of ‘her’ beauty ‘he’ still longs

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
