Powerful words of words. Thank your sharing
Who would remember Helen’s face
Lacking the terrible halo of spears?
Who formed Christ but Herod and Caesar,
The cruel and bloody victories of Caesar?
Violence, the bloody sire of all the world’s values.
Never weep, let them play,
Old violence is not too old to beget new values.
One thought on “Let Them Play”
Oh I just love Helen as allegory for a modern woman/spirit/godess. As I woman I know the struggle for finding metempirical role models. Eve and Lilth are awe inspiring but cliche in this epoch. Helen is the female Parsifal/Parzifal. But this time she, as the green knight, hopes or perhaps cannot consent to travel the path alone. I have no provisions but an open face and great sense of humor. Seems like more than enough, but only time will tell.
Sorry for rambling. What I mean to say is thank you for making and so glad you shared.
