Heather of Elysia by Alvin Conway

Echoing from the bronze gates of Greece
Are songs of love, which never cease
Of a fair young warrior queen
With eyes of purest emerald green
And when tales of her deeds were known
Some cast her likeness from marble stone
So great she was, that legends say
That Athenians named her for a day
And Spartans journeyed from afar
To bear her blessings on shields of war
What finer grace could heaven send?
Than by the noble hand of friend
She was the face that launched a hundred ships
To spread news of her deeds to Greek island tips

Ariel and the Fountain of Seven Graces
