"For centuries, poets, scientists, philosophers, and worshippers have pondered the moon under its serene light - and compiled in this volume is an enthralling collection of the verse, philosophy, psalms, and proverbs that the moon has inspired. Graced with delicate illustrations of moon symbols and the moon itself in every phase of its eternal cycle, accompanied by a lunar calendar and a guide to the world's moon goddesses and gods, this collection - including the writings of Galileo and Robert Frost, the psalmists of the Bible and the Vedic poets - is a lovely and intriguing harvest of lunar wisdom, moon lore, and praise for the silver queen of the heavens."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
