Signs Of The Zodiac









THE annual path of the Sun,
The Ecliptic is called, as we see,--
And a belt, eight degrees, on each side,
The Zodiac ever will be.

The principal planets all seem
To move in the zodiac lines,
While the belt, of itself, is cut up
Into twelve equal parts, called the Signs.

And these signs were first named, we are told,
From their fancied resemblance to beasts,
Which astronomers thought they could see
In the stars, from the West to the East.



There is Aries, the Ram, then the Bull,
Which is Taurus,--then Gemini, Twins;
Then Cancer, a Crab and then Leo,
A Lion, and Virgo, Virgin.

Next Libra, the Balance or Scales,
And Scorpio, a Scorpion (with sting),--
Sagittarius, the Archer or Arrow,--
Capricornus, a Goat's horn we bring.



Aquarius, the Bearer of Water,--
And Pisces, or Fish from the sea,--
All together make twelve, and a wonder
It is, that these fancies should be.
