I'm not the brightest candle in the sky,
But my name is well known, and I am sought
By sailors and young schoolchildren, who eye
The others that show the way to me. Taught
To them when small by friends or fathers. Long
Centuries back, Plato saw another
In the place I now own; Kochab, my strong
Guardian, who is my dear bright brother,
Was once the light that mariners would hold.
Across dark waters, he showed them the way,
A small bear's child, who was by then grown bold,
Till I rose on the stage, my part to play.

Dear Reader, I have told you of my fame;
Will you be able, now, to guess my name?
