Ancient Love

Ancient Love

 
If I were Midas
I would not touch you of course
But I would touch everything around you
Fill your life with golden splendour
 
If I were Homer
My next epic would have you as hero
Magnificent in your helmet and breastplate
Fighting on the shores by a walled city
 
If I were Leonidas
I would come back on my shield
Having died defending you
And all we hold dear
 
If I were Clytemnestra
I would forgive you your war absences
And even Cassandra
I would stand by your side
