Atalanta’s Adorations for Apollo

This is actually the first work I’ve made for Apollon. I prefer to call Him Apollo, so that’s what you’ll see here. These adorations are tailored to fit me, so some things may look slightly off because I’ve changed wording around. I used seven sets of six adorations per set. Seven is a number sacred to Apollon, and six is a number that’s important to me. That’s 42 lines, which is significant because I am always a nerd.

Columbine’s Adorations to Apollon

These Adorations are a mix of my Lord Apollon’s epithets, combined with my very personal doxa concerning each.  Some will match what is known generally, some will not.  As I said, these are my personal Adorations to Him, which I share only because He insists there are others who may benefit from them. The list is rather short, at a mere twenty-one, however, they are meant to be repeated for reasons I will not be discussing.  Hail Apollon!
