New poem celebrating the anniversary of William Herschel’s Jan. 11, 1787 discovery of the moons of Uranus–Titania and Oberon. This piece unites images from a 19th century engraving of Oberon and Titania from Cassell and Company, Ltd and a Voyager 2 picture of Titania the moon (photo credit: NASA, Voyager 2, Calvin J. Hamilton). The text is borrowed from G. Hill’s “Titania’s Banquet, a Mask” (1839) and Arthur Shearly Cripps’ “Titania and Other Poems” (1900).
