Clouds interrupted the session - cut the night short to just 31 subs, out of which 24 were usable.

"So Torak, he swam the seven seas;
Yon seventh, there lay seven more.
But so dire, were pale Artemis's pleas;
He flicked his mane and on he bore.
No hurdles could bar, nor snags cease
His steadfast strides on the ocean floor.

Gentle blue Alnitak, she softly guides
His course and keeps him company.
As he braves storms and weathers tides
To rush Orion to his safety.
True on his word to Artemis he bides
In the long night's perilous journey"
