Hymn to Artemis

by Lady Bella Sundancer
Hail Artemis, Lady of the Hunt
Lady of the Wild, Lady of the Free Spirit
Your arrows fly true, deadly and keen
But uncommonly gentle
Virgin pure, you bare yourself for no man
Running with your nymphs in an endless hunt
You heart is wildest ever, none could ever catch it
Though it is there for all to see
Lady of leaps and bounds, you soar
Beneath the silver crescent moon
The stars reflected in your eyes
All animals are your friends and hunt-mates
From the largest bear to the tiniest flea
There is nothing you haven’t stalked
Nothing you haven’t tracked and chased
Your eye is ever seeing, seeking new prey
Your bow is ready to draw, arrows set to fly
Lady of the Chase, you run for the freedom
For the gloriousness of the wild nature
None shall capture you, none shall corner you
You are fleet and graceful, adept and true
Mistress of the Wild, we pray to you
For your protection and for strength and surety
