  You could have a big dipper   

There is a light and a whistle for attracting attention by J.P. Seabright

I have stabilizers and armbands,

a teething ring and reins,

flares and an air horn,

an umbrella for the rain.

I have a life jacket, a safety harness,

ear plugs and a corkscrew,

a bib and some plasters,

but I do not have you.

I have a compass to navigate,

and a Swiss Army knife,

but none of it can calculate,

your real intention,

so what I need in my life,

is a light and a whistle

for attracting your attention.
