by Nevada Kerr

I am beholden to Hera
My binding Law and Conscience
Material body of all living things
The source from whom all power is drawn

I owe a debt of gratitude
To the Sovereign Queen of gods
Mother, Judge, and Noble Doom
Whose reach is beyond measure

I wander love's beaten path
The circular extent of desire
And in my delirium of plighted faith
The holy roads of danger

Hera, asylum of heroes
Abode of the Blessed
Everlasting Bliss
Infernal Abyss

I join you here
On this bed of roses
In the euphoria of Eden

Arcadian Bride
I kneel reviled
My flesh past dew
My soul beguiled
