Athena Picture

Grey-eyed one, I sing of you,
wisest and most beautiful, relentless Athena,
protector of cities, strong-armed and fair.

From his head the great god birthed you,
dressed in golden armor and bearing a sharp spear.

The holy mountains shook when you were born,
and the earth quaked, and the sea’s dark waves broke against the land.

Even the sun stopped in astonishment at this sight,
this goddess, fresh-born and strong.

Hail to you, Athena, may I never live without the shield of your Protection.
