Hymn To Artemis

Frater U.'.D.'.

Artemis, my sibyl sibling
huntress of the earthy skies,
wayfaress in silver rippling -
in your hands my power lies...

lies my dream and all my making
muted might in liquid pose,
lies my giving and my taking,
caressing friends and smiting foes

in your light and metal sheen,
waxing, waning, touched, unseen,
ever-moving curvéd bow
ever-whirring arrow's flow
to the core of mine own heart
hitting mark, a gentle dart

strikes my body, strikes my soul,
fondles part and fondles whole
towards my ever-pulsing spell:
give me heaven, give me hell
take from me what makes me sink
with your sleight of hand and wink -

Goddess of the nightly sweep,
through the starlit mires seep,
never solemn, yet possessed,
by your mastery expressed,

all your vision's harvest keeps...
all your vision's harvest keeps...

Quote of the moment:
Common sense is what tells you that the world is flat.
