Hebe, The Water Carrier

From velleity
Olympians pilfered thy perogative
For The Water Vessel is thine
Seized from thy slender hands
Given to the catamite; Ganymedes

Oh! Hebe, veracious Water Carrier
Aquarius is thine
Constellation and titular claim
Naught the deadpan Ganymedes; colloquial dotard is he
For Hera once loved him
He forsakes Her and The Matriarchy

Dear Hebe, Hera`s girl
As thy pamour, I forfend the title of thee
I shalt not see thee effaced
My love
Take this chaplet wreath I proffer

Whilst Olympians be imbibed by wine and pride
We shall return The Cup to thee
Sweet Hebe
Requited by assumption to the sidereal realm

For I and The Undines venerate thy element
In ocean spray
In lacustrine libations..........and
In love`s restoration

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
