Nyx's Panoramic Veil

On twilight's sinking bridge, Nyx's waves swell With an ethereal wand casts, dark, bewitching spell O'er deep crevasse, spreads her enchanting veil A glittering panorama of lights ballasts infinity Moonbeams, star streams, and planet gleams form trinity With blipping dots, beeping dashes cosmic dust braille Heavenly bodies over the dark seas parasail Orion's silted bow the fiery bastions doth assail Kneeling, Hercules with glowing club o'er dragon doth flail Pleiades's gaudy sisters in blue-sequined dresses luminosity scale Virgo's virgins spawn into egg; sterility to efface Pisces's forked fish tails lock; damming each, corroded face Aquarius's stout water pail brims with charms to engrace Ursa Major's silver ladle dips deep into briny well Ursa Minor's frail oyster spoon dips into pale ale The Southern Cross's interceding lines point to holy grail
