GMC Poetry: Hestia of the Flame

an oldie but a goodie.

—-

Hestia dwells in the center

The kind-hearted Virgin Goddess

Tends the Flame of Olympos

 

Wherever families come together

SHE is there

Wherever communities unite

SHE is there

Wherever an individual gives himself to others,

SHE is there

 

Hestia of the flame

The Eternal Fire

Unities all

She is the “we”, never “I”

She is the center

The axis

Around which Olympos revolves

 

Hestia is the center of Olympos

Hestia is the heart of the family

Hestia is the hearth, the home

She is the calm within

Hestia is the glue

That holds societies together

 

Hestia dwells in the center

And we gather around Her warmth
