A Divine Myth, OR A Northern Love? By Danny Kemp


Polaris joins together the Bears in the celestial sky.

He’s the pivot that hold the key, but it’s a mystery as to why.

I hope to shed some truth on why that may be.

Please read my explanation and see if you can agree.

Around Polaris does the North sky revolve,

Hiding the Bear hunters, as away they slowly dissolve.

Callisto escaped their chase, but then fell under a spell.

The love Jupiter had, was a secret that he could never tell.

One day she saw their son, but he only saw a bear,

Jupiter had hidden her, beyond his wife’s stare.

She ran towards her son, with arms outstretched.

He saw only the animal, and believed he was being attacked.

An arrow he fired, killing the Bear that he thought threatened him so.

He became the Little Bear. Close to his mother he will now never go.

Polaris knew the truth, he saw it all unfold,

But by then it was too late for that truth to be told.

Jupiter was devastated, there was only one thing he could do.

He sent his friend Polaris skywards, to hold close forever the two!

So there they stay, several star distance apart.

Sharing Jupiter’s love within Polaris’s shining heart!

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller and in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television in the UK.
