Cloaked in Myrtle
Heir to Ioalus’ beauty
Woven by the youngest daughter of the Melainos Aphrodite
As Her hands, guided by the Khairetes
Gave beauty to his soul

Cloaked in Myrtle
Shining earthly beauty
Chiseled in Ivory that offends no One
Voice like honey
Tears of pearl,

Cloaked in Myrtle
Gift of the Khairetes
And I invoke Eros’ and the Dark Mother’s Favour
For I ask so little
And I give so much

Cloaked in Myrtle
This beauty
This glittering perfumed soul
Let the gods clear the slings and arrows of what came before
Let them bring us together by will of Hedone
