	Aphrodite: the Mystery of Love

	She holds us with those spell-bound eyes,
	Mistress of desire, enchantress of moon and night,
	horn and ivory: her gaze seeks out 
	the hidden ways of the lover;
	older than time she stares into the infinity of the soul,
	patroness of arts and crafts, culture bringer
	of the Greeks she is known
	as Panaghia Aphroditessa, All-holy Aphrodite;
	star and crescent ride her white brow
	in honor of her ancient lineage as ruler of earth's mysteries;
	yet, her deepest self rises from the mists of time
	with the gift of maddening love, eros' child,
	on swift wings of desire he flies the salt sea
	bewitching the hearts of his victims
	with the power of nature's wildness - lion
	and dragon writhing in the maelstrom of endless night
	give us hint of this enchantment of the bright Queen of Love.
