Homeric Hymns to Athena   Leave a comment

Here is the Homeric Hymn to Athena
From here: Homeric Hymn to Athena
HOMERIC HYMNS, TRANS. BY H. G. EVELYN-WHITE

XXVIII. TO ATHENA

[1] I begin to sing of Pallas Athene, the glorious goddess, bright-eyed, inventive, unbending of heart, pure virgin, saviour of cities, courageous, Tritogeneia.
From his awful head wise Zeus himself bare her arrayed in warlike arms of flashing gold, and awe seized all the gods as they gazed.
But Athena sprang quickly from the immortal head and stood before Zeus who holds the aegis, shaking a sharp spear: great Olympus began to reel horribly at the might of the bright-eyed goddess, and earth round about cried fearfully,
and the sea was moved and tossed with dark waves, while foam burst forth suddenly: the bright Son of Hyperion stopped his swift-footed horses a long while, until the maiden Pallas Athene had stripped the heavenly armour from
her immortal shoulders. And wise Zeus was glad. And so hail to you, daughter of Zeus who holds the aegis! Now I will remember you and another song as well.

XI. TO ATHENA

[1] Of Pallas Athene, guardian of the city, I begin to sing. Dread is she, and with Ares she loves deeds of war, the sack of cities and the shouting and the battle. It is she who saves the people as they go out to war and come back. Hail, goddess, and give us good fortune with happiness!

We are the Argo   Leave a comment

Voices. Cannons bursting through the air, booming like thunder. Waves crashing against the ship. A man pulled away by the scrape of his neck from wreckage as waves hit the bow.

Voices called out to me. “We are the Argo.” A woman’s voice. I asked her if I could make a post. She said,”Yes.”

I don’t know much else. I know about the legendary ship the Argo which was designed by Athena, its crew blessed by Hera and it was finally consecrated to Poseidon. I know of the ship which took Jason and the Argonauts in search of the Golden Fleece.

I don’t know if this was the Legendary Ship Itself, ancestors from which the myth was based or another ship with the name Argo which fought in some war or against some enemy with cannons.

Hail to the ship and its crew.

What is remembered, lives.
