Supernatural Microscope,
I had to choose between you
and your fellow Telescopium.
I have chosen you
because I want
not to look for remote objects,
but to see wonderful feelings.

Constellation Microscopium,
when I'll be an astronaut,
I'll not use you to see better
your nice neighbours
Capricornus and Piscis Australis.

But I'll take you with me
in my heart
through the Universe

to look with your help, sometimes,
at my unrepeatable childhood.
