Heavv'nly, illustrious, laughter-loving queen,The Hymns of Orpheus, To Venus, trans. Thomas Taylor , reprint, Los Angeles, CA, Philosophical Research Society, 1981, p. 185.
Sea-born, night-loving, of an awful mien;
Crafty, from whom necessity first came,
Producing, nightly, all connecting dame:
Tis thine the world with harmony to join,
For all things spring from thee, O pow'r divine...
Goddess of marriage, charming to the sight,
Mother of Loves, whom banquetings delight;
Source of persuasion, secret, fav'ring queen,
Illustrious born, apparent and unseen:
Spousal, lupercal, and to men inclin'd,
Prolific, most-desir'd, life giving, kind:
Great sceptre-bearer of the Gods, 'tis thine,
Mortals in necessary bands to join;
And ev'ry tribe of savage monsters dire
In magic chains to bind, thro' mad desire...
Come, all-attractive to my pray'r inclin'd,
For thee, I call, with holy reverent mind.
