    **HERO AND LEANDER

    ** HERO AND LEANDER


    The Dardanelles is a narrow strait which links, -
    The strait of Bosporus with the Aegean Sea;
    And also separates the European from the Asian
    side of Turkey!
    In the ancient days this strait was better known
    as Hellespont,
    With its narrowest stretch between Sestos and
    Abydos!
    Hero, the beautiful virgin priestess of Aphrodite*, -
    Lived in Sestos on the European side!
    Leander a fiery youth from Abydos, lived on
    the opposite side of Sestos!
    Leander saw Hero at a religious festival at Sestos,
    And it was love at first sight we are assured!
    Leander wooed Hero with many soft words of
    entreaty;
    How could Aphrodite the Goddess of Love and
    Beauty, -
    Accept a virgin’s worship in the logic of all
    things?
    For it never did fit in to the scheme of things!
    Hero finally consented and returned Leander’s
    love!
    Every night she lit a lamp on Sesto’s tower above!
    To guide Leander as he swam the Hellespont -
    And to come safely to her waiting shores!
    One day a violent storm broke out at sea, -
    Making Leander to drift far out at sea!
    The strong winds had extinguished Hero’s
    tower light,
    What fate ordains can hardly be denied!
    Hero jumped from the tower overcome with
    grief,
    And at the bottom of the Hellespont they both
    peacefully sleep!

    What is a Hero?

    Never did I ever think of the definition of a hero.
    Is a hero someone who defends the innocent who can’t defend themselves?

    Does a hero need's to be arcane? Is a hero someone who thinks of others first? read more »

    The Hero

    In the mirror everyone looks to be a hero or a heroine
    But in reality is not,
