Hail, mother of the gods,
the female ruler of Olympus,
the mistress of the heavens
and the troubled wife of Zeus,
the most impossible of husbands.
Somehow you can keep him in control, however,
although not without some jealous persecutions
of his nymphs and chosen victims,
ending almost all of them in tragedy.
If Zeus is the loose hand of Olympus
flinging thunderbolts and following his whims,
you are the firm hand holding it together
and with success, since your family holds out
and remain in loyal fealty,
sticking to each other in good faith
in spite of all controversies and conflicts.
You are a brave and stalwart goddess
whose beauty and strong character none can deny;
but bravest above all are you
for sticking it out and enduring it with Zeus.
Poetry by Christian Lanciai
