    Under the sky where constellations talk,
    Pollux shines bright in Gemini's walk.
    Avior in Carina, a southern light,
    Guiding sailors through the night.

    Suhail in Vela, with a radiant glow,
    In the ship's sails, its light does show.
    Miaplacidus in Carina's domain,
    A star that calms like gentle rain.

    Alphard in Hydra, a serpent's heart,
    A lone bright star, set apart.
    In this sky, where stories guard,
    Pollux, Avior, Suhail, Miaplacidus, Alphard.


    Under the sky where stories dwell,
    Regulus in Leo, the lion's spell.

    Guiding the bear with a timeless flame.

    Denebola at Leo’s tail end,
    A bright star where the lion’s path bends.
    Gienah in Corvus, the raven's flight,
    A celestial bird in the night.

    A guide through the night, no star is lost.

    Shining brightly in the night.
    Alkaid at the Dipper’s end,
    Guiding the tail as the heavens bend.

    Shining brightly, seen from afar.

    Under the sky where starlight's sent,
    Menkent in Centaurus is bent.

    Arcturus in Bootes shines so bright,
    A shepherd’s guide through the night.
    Zubenelgenubi in Libra’s scale,
    Balancing the night with its tale.

    Guiding the little bear through space.
