Dancing Planets

Pleiades Elihu Vedder

The Pleiades - Elihu Vedde

On nights when the depth of the silence echoes the murmur of the waves and there is the cool caress of a zephyr the planets dance. The silver crescent of the waxing moon is crowned with the diadem of Venus whilst Jupiter’s pale light reflects her mystery. The Pleiades glitter like a swarm of fireflies tangled in a silver braid¹ and as the celestial music of the spheres electrifies the soul of the poet the muse is liberated.

¹Alfred Lord Tennyson
