This is amazing! I especially loved these lines: "Danced with sun, allured the moon, / Lay bare the silent lady's tune," that's so poetic and beautiful.

Antigone is a very complex character; she's not like other women of her time. I'm not sure she's as proud as Oedipus, because she submits to the will of the gods more than he does; but she is defiant, and I suppose defiance is a type of pride.

This was a beautiful tribute to a venerable character. Keep writing!
