Ever-Nurturing Heart

Post  Thrasyvoulos on Fri Feb 14, 2014 4:10 am

I've recently written a poem in honor of Apollo, and tonight during free time in class, a poem for Artemis seemed to spring from nowhere. I thought I'd share it:



Ever-Nurturing Heart

Fair Artemis, scion of Leto,
Beautiful protectress of the wild.
Fierce huntress, armed with your golden bow,
Foolish are they who think you are mild.
Your arrows, with boundless energy,
Seek out souls who think they have not hope,
Pierce their hearts, fill them with a fiery
Desire, confer on them strength to cope.
They fly, blazing aetherial fire,
Propel us down the path of Virtue.
When we fall down into filthy mire,
You draw us out, pull us close to you,
To your wild, ever-nurturing heart.
You carry us, our broken spirits,
Limp in your arms like a sickly hart.
Comfort us, calm our fears. We hear it.
You lay us before the All-Healer,
Your brother, Bright-Shining Apollo,
And he restores us to our splendor.
We prance before you like deer, follow
The bright path set by your golden darts.
We walk in your silver footsteps. For
We love your ever-nurturing heart.

(By Thompson, Jesse A., a.k.a. Icarus)
