A Song Of Artemis

A Song Of Artemis Cover
"I sing of Artemis Khryselakatos,

with shafts of gold,

Keladeine,

strong-voiced,

Parthenon Aidoine,

the revered virgin,

Elaphebolos,

dear-shooting,

Iokheaira,

delighter in arrows,

own sister to Apollon Khrysaor,

of the golden sword.

Over the shadowy hills and windy peaks


she draws her golden bow,

rejoicing in the chase,

and sends out grievous shafts.

The tops of the high mountains tremble


and the tangled wood echoes awesomely

with the outcry of beasts:

earth quakes

and the sea also where fishes shoal.

But the goddess with a bold heart


turns every way

destroying the race of wild beasts:

and when she is satisfied

and has cheered her heart,

then Theroskopos Iokheaira,

the huntress who delights in arrows,

slackens her supple bow

and goes to the great house

of her dear brother Phoibos Apollon,

to the rich land of Delphoi,

there to order the lovely dance

of the Mousai (Muses_) and Kharites (_Graces).

There she hangs up her curved bow


and her arrows,

and heads and leads the dances,

gracefully arrayed,

while all they utter in heavenly voice,

singing how neat-ankled Leto bare children

supreme among the immortals

both in thought and deed.

Hail to you,

children of Zeus and rich-haired Leto!

And now I will remember you

and another song also.”

~Homeric Hymn 27
