To Hera by C. Marbutt

To Hera
by Chris Marbutt

Cow-eyed Hera, at your command the
Storm winds blow and the sea grows restless.
Beautiful you are to behold,
When you appear in the Heavens.
Equal in honor you are to Zeus.
You bless the wedding bed,
And hold inviolable the vows of lovers.
You join together heaven and earth.
Majestic Goddess of Argos,
Of whom wondrous things are woven,
Golden crowned Sky Queen,
Adorn yourself with light
And bless us here.
