Back to Hymns and Prayers to the God.


but the God who strikes dead

shall be Physician?

Who other than He Who strikes the living down

shall be most beautiful?

Who, but He Whose Name recalls Destroyer

Shall be fit to battle with the Furies?

Who else, God of prophecy,

But the very One who will choose to draw the bow?

His Sister, and closest blood, the Huntress.

His Son, who would revive the slain.

So that when the God and Eros contest before Daphne
That is Love-and Death-contesting.

Yes. And poetry.

No wonder that He shines so.

In Your Honor. Todd Jackson
