Astronomical Delight …

There’s a new moon tonight.

Just the slightest sliver of cool silver.

It hangs delicately in a sky of midnight blue and black

with

sparkling Jupiter and Venus

as its adornments.

Such astronomical delight!

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner

The moving Moon went up the sky.
And nowhere did abide;
Softly she was going up,
And a star or two beside-

 Samuel Taylor Coleridge
