The Mystical Hymns of Orpheus

Translated from the Greek

And Demonstrated to Be the Invocations which were used in the Eleusian Mysteries

By Thomas Taylor
1824






Chapter LXIV.

The Orphic Hymn to Mars

The Fumigation from Frankincense


Magnanimous, unconquer'd, boistrous Mars,
In darts rejoicing, and in bloody wars
Mars as Lord of War
Fierce and untam'd, whose mighty pow'r can make
The strongest walls from their foundations shake:
Mortal destroying king, defil'd with gore,
Pleas'd with war's dreadful and tumultuous roar:
Thee, human blood, and swords, and spears delight,
And the dire ruin of mad savage fight.
Stay, furious contests, and avenging strife,
Whose works with woe, embitter human life; 10
To lovely Venus, and to Bacchus yield,
To Ceres give the weapons of the field;
Encourage peace, to gentle works inclin'd,
And give abundance, with benignant mind.
