Presently, instead of being scattered equally over the space they occupy, they form clusters,--constellations, as it were,--and between these clusters are clear spaces, produced by the separation of the albumen from the oil.
When I came hither, I usually found them quite naked, which is the custom of this country, tottering in their walk, and holding each other by the hands and under the arms, as we represent the constellation of the Twins.
Then I was watching the flying constellations, and the Westward hastening moon.
Every one knows the most prominent constellations,--the Pleiades, the Great Bear, and Orion.
Campbell, Shelley, and Byron were single lights, and did not form constellations,--unless, perhaps, Shelley and Byron may be regarded as a wayward and quickly-disappearing Gemini.
