by Andrei Dorian Gheorghe

You knew the extreme feelings,
Left by your parents Cepheus and Cassiopeia
(constellations of betrayal),
saved and loved by Perseus
(the constellation of the flying rescuer),
you have become a famous woman in the sky,
a constellation too,
possessing even a great nebula!

And perhaps the Andromedid meteors
are your tears
of despair and happiness.
