A Poem by Hypnos

Bright-helmed Ares, strong of arm and stern of visage,
firm of stance, unyielding of will, ever ready
to face any foe, to hold the line against
all who may come, to battle until the end.
Ares, son of noble Zeus and wise Hera,
cherished by golden Aphrodite, honored
by those who call on you for strength and courage,
in the north were you much honored in times of old,
in Thrace and Thessaly were you held in esteem
by those whose lives were harsh, whose world was stony,
whose comforts were hard-won. Ares who answers
the prayers of the despairing, I honor you.

I congratulate you on your wonderful conjoining of words into phrases and sentences. I can't wait to read more of your work! You seem like a wonderful, spiritual person and I envy that. I pray to the gods that you have a long, happy life!
