Tennyson-Ganymede When Jupiter came down to earth, to seek a successor to Hebe as cupbearer to the gods, he took the form of an eagle, and, flying over Mount Ida, saw the Trojan prince Ganymede, whom he carried off to Olympus. Tennyson, in his "Palace of Art", describes as among the pictures decorating its walls, one of Ganymede borne aloft by the eagle-- Or else flushed Ganymede, his rosy thigh Half buried in the Eagle down, Sole as a flying star shot thro' the sky Above the pillar'd town
