Stars from a Different Sky

Editor Evan Mantyk graciously placed this poem on his classical poetry site the Society of Classical Poets.  Formal poems take years of work for me to get into final form.  This one was no different, though I think the discipline was good for me.  I had to lose superfluous words and tinker, tinker, tinker with the meter.  It now says what I’d hoped it would.
