A Downpour On Olymp - Poem by dimitrios galanis
They took early the message:
His known nod.*
And concentrated the clouds high up on Olymp
brooding over menacing shadows their assault.
Frowned too Ossa's peaks.
Started darkening the sky.
Shadows flooded pastures, ravines,
covered prairies, gorges, glens, dingles.
The whole area all around in heavy mist.
Smites Boreas the mountaineer lull.
Ready the royal vehicle to carry the pyr.
Neighing the devine steeds.
The great charioteer parades over clouds in rage.
Lightnings, thunderbolts upon ridges expels.
From its roots up the mega mountain quakes.
Mature the downfall.
The first raindrops in bursting attack.
Bush, tree leaves clug.
Shepherds, herds, wild beasts,
Nymphs, Muses, Sileni
the omens discern:
''Α niche, nook to protect, alcove, cave.''
Rushing the downpour
drums on the ground in dance wild.
Brooks, runlets, torrents and rills run,
flow in haste the slopes deep.
Defeated obstacles on land wide wide,
capsized cockles swirling in plight.
To His Mercy an appeal?
'' In necessity's loop bound are gods too.''
Speed, feathers on feet to save.
*Homer Il.A 528 He[Zeus] bent his ponderous black brows down..
