Poem for Apollon

(Reposted with permission)

Lord of the sun
Successor and apprentice to Helios
Son of Zeus and Leto
Brother of Artemis
Father of Asclepius, Troilus, Aristarchus, and Orpheus
The kouros ideal
Lord of truth and prophecy
Of healing and plague
Of music and poetry
Judge of the Pythian Games
Lord of the colonies
Born on Delos
Under a palm
