Daughters of Atlas
seven nymphs of Pleiades
Pleiones maidens

Maia the eldest
introvert isolation
earth goddess, mother

Electra shining
bright amber, Zeus coveted
blue star of Taurus

Alcyones grace
most brilliant of the seven
kingfisher nesting

Taygete hid
as deer among mountains
spurning great Zeus

Asteropes death
running from love, snake bite sting
river nymphs passing

Celaeno, star nymph
a dark one amongst seven
lost to the cluster

Merope ashamed
turned away from Sisyphus
bee-eater fading
