Pearls in the nighttime sky,
Surely they must be the light of angels.
Visible to the mortal eye,
Things of myth and divine fables.
Twinkling hope from up above,
Promising man a life here after.
Quieting the mind and heart with love,
Giving joy with bouts of laughter.
Adhara, Nashira, Mira, Alcyone,
Shining from the heavens beyond.
Watching, protecting ‘til time on earth is done,
Guiding their charges to the calm.
