Prayer to and response from Aphrodite

To
Dapple-throned Aphrodite,

Dapple_ throned Aphrrodite
Eternal daughter of Zeus and Hera,
Snare-knitter! Don't, I beg you,
Cow my heart with grief! Come,
as you once did when you heard my far-
off cry and, listening, stepped
from your father's house to your
golden Chariot, to yoke the pair of
beautiful thick-feathered Golden winged doves
And roared down, perfuming the air, from Olympus
Carried by Dream you to light swiftly
on the dark earth; then, blissful one,
smiling your immortal smile
you asked, What ailes me now that
I call you again? What
What was it that my distracted
heart most wanted? ``Whom has
Persuasion to bring round now
`to your love? ” Who, James, is
unfair to you? Is it Lisa? For, let her
run, she will soon run after you;
If she won't accept gifts, she
will one day give them; and if
she won't love you - she soon will
love, very willingly
Come now! I will relieve Your intolerable pain!
What your heart wants most will
happen, The Gods will make it happen
you your- you your-self joined forces on our side!
Rejecting those three imposters
And so in Love Aphrodite Grants Your will”

Beautiful poem on Valentine's Day with mythical touch of Goddess of love. Deep and mature, not like many cliche type love poems...... Deserves 10/10. Regards Naseer
