With blue and yellow star.
They go together beneath the Big Dipper,
If you wonder where they are.
The Galaxy's light shines through the night,
Ten millions of light-years away.
But never fear the Owl is near,
Inside the Milky Way.
A cosmic shroud, the Owl is proud,
its central star a must.
And the spiral Galaxy lies on edge
To show off all its dust,
To show off all its dust.
