Within that fort, the Seven Domes
the seven planets’ natures owned.
The hue of each the star-knower weighed,
against each planet’s cast assayed.
The dome of Saturn, as was fit,
was veiled in musky black; while that
Of Jupiter, just as it should,
received the hue of sandalwood.
The one that Mars encompassed clasped
red as its emblem; as for that
The Sun informed, bright bands of gold
made its hue yellow. That which hoped
For Venus-like adornment blazed
as bright and white as Venus’ face.
That one sustained by Mercury
was turquoise-hued, like victory;
While that towards whose tower the Moon
went forth, was clad in verdant green.
