Mount Olympus - Poem by Kurt Kacich

Mount Olympus home to many Gods that ruled the Earth,
The highest mountain of Greece, that represented power and mirth,
Home of Zeus the youngest son of Cronus and Rhea, the King of Gods,
The all powerful ruler of the skies retaining power from the lightning rod,
Wedded to Hera the Queen of the Gods, Goddess of marriage and motherhood,
The Goddess of women over the world, to make women’s power understood,
Where Poseidon rises the trident to the sky and the rain pours down,
The God of the seas, horses and earthquakes, that rules the waters all around,
Mount Olympus where Demeter manipulates the season down on Earth,
The seasons of fall, winter, spring, and summer, The Goddess of fertility and birth,
Home to Hestia the Goddess that creates shelters for the Earth,
The daughter of Cronus and Rhea, the sister of Zeus, for what its’ worth,
Where the doves fly in Mount Olympus you’ll find Aprodite,
Aprodite, the goddess of sexuality, beauty and love,
Enriched with robes of glamour and the symbol of doves,
Where light comes from Mount Olympus Apollo embraces power,
God of light, healing, music, poetry, prophecy, archery and the arts,
The savior of expression that leads humankind to perception of the heart,
Mount Olympus the home of the one man army Ares, the God of War,
Symbolic to bloodshed, boars and spears, to protect Olympus and to settle the score,
When the sun goes down in the sky you’ll find Artemis sitting on the moon,
The Goddess of the moon and the hunt, that brings darkness during sleep during a swoon,
Where weapons and tools are created on Mount Olympus lies in the hands of Hephaestus,
The bastard son of Hera the God of forge and fire that brings light to the moon,
Mount Olympus, the palace that needs a messenger from the sky to the Earth,
Hermes, the messenger from Olympus, the God of commerce and thieves,
The proof of Gods on Mount Olympus Hermes spreads the common beliefs.
