  • Orion - 736 words
    Orion Orion Down fell the red skin of the lion Into the river at his feet. His mighty club no longer beat The forehead of the bull; but he Reeled as of yore beside the sea, When blinded by Oenopion He sought the blacksmith at his forge, And climbing up the narrow gorge, Fixed his blank eyes upon the sun. ~The Occultation of Orion by Mr. Longfellow~ This poem was written about the Greek myth of Orion.
