First Aries, glorious in his Golden Wool,
Looks back, and wonders at the mighty Bull,
Whose back-parts first appear: He bending lies
With threatning Head, and calls the Twins to rise,
They clasp for fear, and mutually embrace;
And next the Twins with an unsteady pace
Bright Cancer rolls: Then Leo shakes his Mane:
And following Virgo calms his Rage again:
Then Day and Night are weigh'd in Libra's Scales,
Equal a while, at last the Night prevails,
And longer grown the heavyer Scale inclines
And draws bright Scorpio from the Winter Signs:
Him Centaur follows with an aiming Eye
His Bow full drawn and ready to let fly:
Next narrow Horns the twisted Caper shows,
And from Aquarius Urn a floud o'erflows.
Near their lov'd Waves cold Pisces take their Seat,
With Aries joyn and make the Round compleat.
Ever moving as they shine,
the hand that made us is divine.
