Poem For Galileo

Poem For Galileo

Gliding across the sky, a pearly star; Neither a Moon nor a god; The only of its kind, an impish glee; For countless millennia, shrouded in poems; In one instance, I know what I see; As it sets in half-light, sinking in the glow; A world I can see; A world I have yet to know.
