Old Zodiac Nursery Rhyme

Rise Riser Rise a Zodiac poem by Romina Russell

Rise, Riser, arise,
For the stars are telling you lies!

You are Sagittarian,
But your soul is Aquarian.

You are out of the norm,
So you’ll have to transform.

Rise, Riser, arise,
For the stars are telling you lies!

If changes manifest,
Put your old self to rest.

Your new life will begin,
When you join your new kin.

Rise, Riser, arise,
For the stars are telling you lies!

But dear Riser beware,
Of a dire fate that’s rare:

If the shift twists your mind,
No true home will you find.

Now rise, Riser, arise,
To defy the stars and their lies!



And the title of ZODIAC 4 (the last book in the series) is… THIRTEEN RISING!
