The Faun Sees Snow For The First Time

Zeus,
Brazen-thunder-hurler,
Cloud-whirler, son-of-Kronos,
Send vengeance on these Oreads

Nice poem, I liked the words. Poem about Bambi?
Nicely written When I stamp my hoof The frozen-cloud-specks jam into the cleft So that I reel upon two slippery points...
Hmmmm... felt like I was reading two poems jammed together, each were good in their own way but the moods do not blend together... and I really prefer the faun half
Over the brown trees with the muse of life. Thanks for sharing.
Not so lovely poem, but Rajnish is right about the message in the last two lines.
Lovely poem emanating from Roman Gods and Mythology carries a message for man. Fool, to stand here cursing When I might be running!
