Homeric Hymns


TO APHRODITE

Of Cytherea, born in Cyprus, I will sing.
She gives kindly gifts to men: smiles are ever on her lovely face, and lovely is the brightness that plays over it.

Hail, goddess, queen of well-built Salamis and sea-girt Cyprus; grant me a cheerful song.
And now I will remember you and another song also.
