The Goddess

Aphrodite I shall sing to whose domain
Of august gold-wreathed and beautiful
belong the battlements of all sea-loved
Cyprus where, blown by the moist breath
of Zephyros, she was carried over the
waves of the resounding sea on soft foam.
The gold-filleted Horae happily welcomed
her and clothed her with heavenly raiment.”
~Demetrios Chalcondyles
