Hymn to Athena

Hymn to Athena
I begin to sing of Pallas Athena,
the glorious goddess, bright-eyed, inventive, unbending of heart, pure virgin, saviour of cities, courageous, Tritogeneia.

Wise Zeus himself bare her
from his awful head,
arrayed in warlike arms of flashing gold, and awe seized all the gods
as they gazed.
But Athena sprang quickly
from the immortal head
and stood before Zeus
who holds the aegis,
shaking a sharp spear:
great Olympus began to reel horribly
at the might of the bright-eyed goddess, and earth round about cried fearfully,
and the sea was moved
and tossed with dark waves,
while foam burst forth suddenly:
the bright Son of Hyperion
stopped his swift-footed horses
a long while,
until the maiden Pallas Athena
had stripped the heavenly armour
from her immortal shoulders.
And wise Zeus was glad.

And so hail to you,
daughter of Zeus who holds the aegis! Now I will remember you and another song as well.
