look to Ursa Major and and then Ursa Minor...
...line up the two at the end of the Big Cup...
these light the way,
unseen by day,
to yonder Polestar...
Crux of Navigation!
Northern Hemisphere: find your place!
Horizon, before your face?
Find angle between,
lands' end, and star you now see!
No longer, your Latitude unknown.
