Poem: Ourania Above

OURANIA (also Urania)

Born of memory
embedded and traced
in the stars above
mother to music
dirges of death
hymns of hope

You inspire us
mortals below
raising our eyes
from mud to stars
we weary mundane
sparked into dreaming
dazzled by your
twinkling lights
capturing souls
heroes and foes
circling ever above.
