Hermes The Fleetfoot - Poem by Albert George Vinny
'Hermes the Fleetfoot'
And Zeus would send a message
using lesser gods of station..
the whole world would look less upon
the Greek Gods, to religion
But this Hermes with his winged feet
his winged helmet..
his county seat..(of commerce)
does cause me ponder much..?
How is it he would be so fleet?
And what of the girl with sandles that
gather at poolside
to lay near the columns and such..?
This hermes does give a glimpse
into the world of muse
It pleases me much these things..
It teases me much these things..
I do have my own lowly message to send
and this one 'Zeus'an eager ear to surely lend
I wish to have the same girl, this day
that Hermes put away
To have her tell me everything
Mercury much too fast to say.
-Albert George Vinny
