Hera

Glorious Hera, fair one, noble one,
beautiful Hera with eyes as deep and full
as any well, as bright as distant stars,
as clear as the cloudless sky, I praise you.
Peerless Hera, queen of high Olympos,
chosen bride of thundering Zeus, only you
could match his might, his wit, his every step.
Dear Hera, guardian of marriage, of love
between partners, of constancy, of faith
and of faithfulness, your blessings you give
to those who hold together against the world;
who build together a family, a haven,
a life; who grow together into a fond
old age, ever ardent, ever devoted.
Shining Hera, sublime goddess, I honor you.
