Orpheus Magic Poetic Music

Rating: 5.0
Orphus 'twas playing
His most magical tune
While Greek soldiers
Fought under blue moon

Tyrants and despots
Bent towards their evil whims
Undaunting acrimony
Their foul mouths spin

But in the distance
Near the Aegean Sea
Orpheus's music
Has inticed little me

The Oracle announced him
'He's magic' The oracle bemused
Poetry came to me
I so very enthused

The Acropolis of Athen's
Stood tall at attention
In hopes that Orpheus
Would give them honrable mention


Dedicated to: Origins of Poetry
To Orpheus and all things Greek

I love You...

If good ole Orpheus won't give you an Honorable Mention...I'll give you first place. How this work turns and turns again(T.S.) . Between the lines, and how good they are, and meanings, you've taken Greek Tradgedy and turned it to poetry...without a muse to interfere! You had doubts you could write poetry? Maybe before you were born! Great and good! xxElysabeth

Theodora, this was a magnificent poem of ancient Greece. I've always had a fond liking to the legends of Greece. This to my mind is a great piece. Top Marks from me. Thanks for sharing it my friend. David.
