Canis Major, a poem by Robert Frost. ...WHAT?

The great Overdog
That heavenly beast
With a star in one eye
Gives a leap in the east.
He dances upright
All the way to the west
And never once drops
On his forefeet to rest.
I'm a poor underdog,
But to-night I will bark
With the great Overdog
That romps through the dark.

Really straightforward here, but I'm fighting exhaustion this week. The constellation isn't meant to be totally accurate, since the star wouldn't be in his eye-area, but I was trying to reflect the poem more than anything. This dog is also less majestic and more playful, but, DOGGY, so. COLOOOORRRRS. Four of them on navy. I could have also included Canis Minor, but... so tired. So tired.

This is so beautiful. I love the colors and love the theme. I'm going to buy this if it is printed. I think that many of my friends would like also buy this.
