TO ARTEMIS, by                     Poet's Biography
First Line: To artemis I kneel, whose bow
Last Line: Have learnt the gentler way.
Alternate Author Name(s): Anakreon; Anacreontea

TO Artemis I kneel, whose bow
Finds the stag and lays him low,
The Queen whom beasts obey --
O child of Zeus, his golden daughter,
From Lethaeus whirling water
Thine eyes on men brave-hearted rest
With joy; for these thou shepherdest
Have learnt the gentler way.
