by Andrei Dorian Gheorghe

I do not value you
for your material wealth,
even if your golden fleece provoked
the Argonauts' heroic expedition.

I do value you
for your spiritual wealth,
Constellation Aries,
because only you
receive the Sun in audience
on every beginning of spring,
both of you
the Earth's renew.
