Adorations of Leto

Ninth day of Treasury Month Perihelios – Feast of Leto (Jan. 7, 2017)

These Adorations of Leto are inspired by common knowledge of the Goddess, and by personal doxa.  There are 27 lines, equaling 9, the number of days and nights Leto labored to birth our Prince, Apollon.


Leto, I adore You, who fled from Your Homeland

Leto, I adore You, who ensures the wellbeing of Your Sister

Leto, I adore You, who are followed by a mighty warband

Leto, I adore You, who approached the Queen for Zeus’ hand

Leto, I adore You, who is always unafraid

Leto, I adore You, who brought the gift of Your regal bearing into the realm of Olympos

Leto, I adore You, who knew Your own worth

Leto, I adore You, who snared the King in a single glance

Leto, I adore You, who secured a place for Yourself and for Your Sister

Leto, I adore You, who rides upon the wild winds

Leto, I adore You, who drives that pack of fierce-fanged wolves

Leto, I adore You, who is veiled only before midnight

Leto, I adore You, who is fair-skinned and golden-tressed

Leto, I adore You, whose voice is the howl before the hunt

Leto, I adore You, who swelled with the Holy Twins within Your womb

Leto, I adore You, who traversed many lands searching for a place of birth

Leto, I adore You, who was at last cared for by the Sister You so well protected

Leto, I adore You, who brought forth the life of Artemis without pain

Leto, I adore You, who laid beneath the palm for nine days and nine nights to deliver our Lord Apollon

Leto, I adore You, who returned to Olympos in sweet triumph

Leto, I adore You, who is demure and unflinching in the face of opposition

Leto, I adore You, who is more than what we see in the bright light of day

Leto, I adore You, whose pride is well-respected and rightly earned

Leto, I adore You, whose ire wrought destruction upon Niobe

Leto, I adore You, whose strength is unfathomable

Leto, I adore You, who brushes aside false pride and ignorance

Leto, I adore You, who is the Mother of the dance between Darkness and Light
