To Diana

By Elvira

O, Goddess                 traveling                      silently
across the sky:
thy crown aglow
for centuries,
Man has worshipped you
and, now the ardent lover<
possesses YOU —
Did you ever wonder if He
would ever fulfill
his desire?

Fear, not:         for he is fickle
and will look at other
damsels           to         satisfy his
Sail on, oh lovely Diana.
Your Crescent Crown is safe
for now. Light the petty
steps of human kind.
You will be immortal.
His destiny is the grave.
No wonder drug          can save him
and you, dear Goddess
will forever Beam.
