Alpha Centauri

Bright binary star at

Civilisation’s

Dawn part of an

Equatorial constellation shifted

Far south since that time the

Greeks depicted the constellation as

Half human half horse with the Southern Cross as one of

Its legs the Babylonians as a bison with a human

Joined at its torso

Keeping to its course it will gradually

Lift in our celestial sphere

Moving

North towards the celestial equator and then

Over the next hundred thousand years will according to our

Perspective

Quite vanish from sight

Receding amongst the countless

Stars of

The Milky Way
