Joseph said that the stars would fall
Within a month all would see
On the last nightfall mobs came to call
Midst, in truth, the sky burst, glowing!
Saints, trapped along the river
Had no where to run or flee
Stars fell as though from a quiver
And the mobs left peacefully
The constellation was the king, Leo
From Regulus, its heart, a sickle burst apart
Jupiter had just disturbed a comet
Proving the Godhead played a part
The skies are for signs and wonder!
Leo- the King
Jupiter- the Messiah
Regulus- (regal) the Holy Ghost
From the Sickle- angels
the time- November 13, 1833 the harvest
