An Ancient Greek PoemZeus is the king of the gods and goddessesAn Ancient Greek Poem8 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
No one is mightier than he
He has power over all of mankind
Zeus is the most important as you can see
Lightning bolts are his weapons
And he controls the weather
Hey, did you know that
Zeus and Hera are together?
Hera is the queen of all
And the marriage protector
She took care of the women and children
While she sipped on Nector
Zeus was the youngest of his siblings
But he was still the leader
His other siblings are
Hestia, Hera, Hades, Poseidon, and Demeter
Hades became the god of the under world
Because he loved the rich minerals in the Earth
He was also god of wealth
So he obviously liked the jewels for what they were worth
Demeter, is the goddess of fruit, corn, wheat, and grain
She was the one who made them grow
But she neglected the crops every time
Persephone was taken below
She mourned for three months
Until Persephone returned
And the earth was lush again
And that was why the seasons turned
Poseidon was the giver of horses
He was rul

The Nine MusesI went to Mount OlympusThe Nine Muses7 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
When all the skies were grey
And Tartarus didn't want me
So I gladly ran away
And these ones did I see:
Clio gladly greeted me
Telling me about the years of yore
Melpomene greeted me with tears
Telling me of all the wrongs
That happened through the years
Thalia then pushed her aside
And made me laugh again
Terpsichore ran at me
And showed me how to dance
Euterpe sang for me
And also played the flute
Erato talked to me about love
And I recalled what I had missed
Urania pointed to the stars
And that gave me hope
To know such far distant things
Calliope told me a story
Of such grand scope
It was of my future
And it gave me hope
Polyhymnia told me blessed things
My soul mate was one of them
So when I went back to Tartarus
I was much happier then
Because I knew love was in my future
And that gave me hope
Athena and ArachneAthena and ArachneAthena and Arachne7 years ago in Children and Teen More Like This
Long, long ago in Greece there were many gods and goddesses who were worshipped by the Greek people. The twelve gods and goddesses in charge of everything were known as the Olympians and lived on top of Mount Olympus.
Zeus and Hera were king and queen of the gods and the other ten Olympians were made up of their brothers and sisters and sons and daughters.
The goddess Athena, one of Zeuss daughters, was the goddess of wisdom, war, and arts and crafts. She was a very proud goddess, and, like nearly all her fellow gods, she would go to any lengths to protect her reputation.
Athena, being the goddess of wisdom, enjoyed spreading knowledge to her believers, and among the many things she did to accomplish this was to set up schools to teach weaving, a useful and admired skill.
One day, the most talented student in one of the schools, a girl named Arachne, boldly declared that she was the best weaver in the world even better than Athena!

Various people have helped me with this list and I only hope this thing continues to grow. Dedicated to all the Lufia fans out there who are crazy as us. Then again, Forfeit Island and Lufia.net are the two most biggest boards out there.
1. You have dressed up like a Lufia character for Halloween, more then once.
2. You have dressed up like them and went to a school dance. Then got kicked out for taking a tree limb that represents Lufia's staff into the gym because it was taller then you.
3. You tell your parents that when there was a power outtage that it was Erim. After all, who knows who she's casting Thunder on.
4. You have made weird stories, such as The Bus Stop Disaster.
5. And then want pictures of that story done.
6. After nearly seven years of playing Lufia, you finally start celebrating the birthday of that character. Course, you did a year after you beat it too.
7. You cry at the ending of L
The tale of Zeus and HeraO, me! O, my! O, shoes!The tale of Zeus and Hera7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
There's a million and one!
And that one, his name is Zeus,
And as they say, there are a million shoes in the sea,
And thus a shoe for every shoe but one.
For Zeus was made to fit one foot,
One shoe, for one man, with one leg,
And he was one, he had no friend,
With whom to spend the lonely nights,
With whom to spend the lonely days.
But one day...
The man with one leg,
Met a woman with one leg,
And that woman with one leg,
had one foot for her one leg,
And on that foot, she had one shoe...
O, me! O, my! O, shoes!
There's a million and two!
And that two, were named Zeus and Hera,
And as they say, there are a million shoes in the sea,
But we all know there are a million and two!

I think that where she walks it must be Spring.
She so loves every living thing; she'll lie
Stretched out on the grass, and smile at the sky,
Her time with me a dim, forgotten thing,
As if I had burst forth on fierce black steeds,
And borne her down to an underground hell,
Of drugs, electroshock and perspex cell,
And bound her there with pomegranate seeds.
It's cold here while I wait for season's turn,
For her to write, and bless me with her care,
Her words as warm and soft and light as air,
To tell me Spring has come to me again.
For at every spot where her footsteps fell,
The grass grows greener, and rose buds swell.

Athena's PoemFrom this mountain I watchAthena's Poem6 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
As Greeks fall another notch
Down the ladder of the world
Like a discus that had been hurled
Oer the mountain, past the sea
Taking their love far away from me
Faiths crumble, belief starts to wan
What has come of my great clan?
As I fade from their mind
I watch as they slowly go blind

Spin that thread nice and binding Clotho! the fate Lachesis said to her sister, This new coming child will have a long life.
Lachesis was no doubt the most beautiful of the three fates, pale white skin with gashes around her wrists and ankles, her long rounded hair was a dark shade of auburn and her eyes were dark and seem to give her a merciless look. Wrapped around her head was a beautiful dark grey headscarf that connected to her gray robe and that hide her white pointed ears.
She along with her sisters was very old, but in their youth the sisters drank an elixir made out of the scrapings of a gem placed at the temple of Hebe (goddess of Youth) and the combined waters of the Bistonis Lake and the Evros River and given to them by Hades in exchange for their wisdom and knowledge of things to come.
Clotho hummed happily as she spun a thread of life on a long staff, she was the happiest of the three sisters, as well as being the most unpleasant to look at.

Mt. Olympus was shaking. Humans at the foot of the mountain worried that a volcano was about to erupt. Mortals, however, are constantly wrong. Something else was going on and it wasnt pretty.
Oh my gosh! Like, why dont I get a city named after me? Why does Athena get one? Like, seriously... said Aphrodite.
Um, why do I get a city? Its because Im the smartest, the strongest, and the cleverest! People adore me, its only natural that the greatest city-state is named after me. The Goddess of Wisdom, Aphrodite, I dont stand around looking pretty, Stupid. said Athena.
Athena, darling. I know youre jealous of my beauty, you dont have to bring it up. Theres no need to compensate for looking hideous!
Thats right hag
Yeah Aphrodite, you
