Dionysos and the Fire-Pulsing Stars

“Leader in the dance of the fire-pulsing stars,
overseer of the voices of night,
child of Zeus, be manifest,
with due companionship of Maenad maids
whose cry is but your name.”

~From Sophocles’ Antigone,
Translated by Elizabeth Wyckoff

The above excerpt from the Choral Ode in Antigone came to mind when I was listening to “Cosmic Love” (lyrics here) by Florence and the Machine earlier today. Watch the “Cosmic Love” music video on YouTube.
