HYMN TO ARTEMIS (HOMERIC HYMN IX) TRANSLATED BY H.G. EVELYN-WHITE
Muse, sing of Artemis, sister of the Far-shooter, the virgin who delights in arrows, who was fostered with Apollo. She waters her horses from Meles deep in reeds and swiftly drives her all-golden chariot through Smyrna, to vine-clad Claros where Apollo, God of the silver bow, sits waiting for the far-shooting Goddess who delights in arrows.
