The Gifted One

The Seduction of Apollo's Creed

Apollo is the Olympian God of the sun and light, music and poetry, healing and plagues, prophecy and knowledge, order and beauty, archery and agriculture.


Apollo, Olympian God of the sun

Roman God blessed from above

Hearts, he bestows with seeds of love

Thy knowledge is wise

God of the sun, as sure as the day arise

Poetic words of gifts, so serene, so true

Pierced arrow of thy heart, when Cupid’s bow cannot do

Imparted the minds of Zeus’ nine muses

Handsomely inspired to seduce the heart in solitude

Apollo, the Olympian God, such a charismatic ruse

Apprehending love, the heart cannot hide or refuse

Coveted the Greek Goddesses in such tender recluse

Wisdom to inspire the land with fruits he bears

Seeds of love reaps for the Tortoise and the Hare

Healing of plagues, as ordained, gifts found beyond the stars

The body and the mind thy heal, found beyond the realm of Mars

An Olympian God of talents, of such wondrous as thy heart uses it

Souls dancing in the rain of its glory, spellbinding of freedom music

Yet drift to thy ears, echoing of its fears

 Never had visions in the absence of heavenly tears

God brings the snow, sun, and the rain

Archangel Gabriele brings the messages over and over again

Archangel Michael bites the bullet of the striking pain

Receiver broken in vain for a dream redeemer

Once cloaked behind such a sweet reliever

Beauty will shine on thee, in the darkest of night

My prophecy guides the ill will in the begotten of flight

Dawn will embrace in the mist of Heavenly beckoning light

Tasted of its essence, lamented for earth in its bosom’s plight

As Apollo spirit once stood

Sequestered on Mt. Olympus and Helicon, nine muses adopted his creed of good

To continue in life’s journey as one should, would, or could

As gifted within self

Love and Honor on earth, will reap its benefits, only after death

Apollo, Greek Olympian God, the wonders of his hands blessed of its wealth

The creed of his sacred deeds shall always wish woman and mankind nothing but the best
