Myth and legend are shown to say
Dionysus lead the light-hearted Horae,
representations of hours of time,
bringing, bestowing ripeness sublime.
Personifications of seasonal nature,
They come and go at just the right juncture,
guard the gates of Olympus, are free
as the stars, with grace to celebrate, rally
in freshness and flowers,
the marvellous hours
to foster fertility.
