Orion and His Hounds

Perhaps one of the most famous men to have ever lived

Is the man now immortalized as a late season constellation.

Orion the hunter forever out on the hunt

Looking to repay the deadly scorpion.

But this man will never be left all alone,

For he has his two faithful companions always at his side,

Today called Canis Major and Canis Minor,

The two hunting dogs never run and hide.

These two dog constellations show how faithful dogs are

Even to death they will not depart

It is enough to warm even the chilliest heart.

Their master died by Scorpio’s sting

Still they did not leave him, and now every night they will bark

At the enemy that is forever so closely to them parked
