Frederick Cayley Robinson,
The Palace of Night, Act III, scene I

TYLTYL throws the door wide open. The STARS, in the shape of beautiful young girls veiled in many-coloured radiancy, escape from their prison, disperse over the hall and form graceful groups on the steps and around the columns, bathed in a sort of luminous penumbra.

The PERFUMES OF THE NIGHT, who are almost invisible, the WILL-O'-THE-WISPS, the FIREFLIES and the transparent DEW join them, while the SONG OF THE NIGHTINGALES streams from the cavern and floods the Palace of NIGHT.  

MYTYL (clapping her hands with delight)
Oh, what pretty ladies!...  

TYLTYL
And how well they dance!...  

MYTYL
And how sweet they smell!...  

TYLTYL
And how beautifully they sing!...
