Madly, I have fallen in love with Artemis,
goddess of the hunt, moon and wilderness,
like Zeus falling for pretty Europa,
though I have pledged my human love to her,
as myself instead of as birds or beasts
I love you with all my heart, my dear Artemis!
Thinking if I have lived long enough, already,
I was burning like a candle burns before
the blue and yellow flame is extinguished
but then I found Artemis, smiling at my door.
In a flash my emptiness, dejection and pain,
all of them were whisked away by your starlit smile,
as I tasted the innocence, in your violent kiss,
of the silver moon and blood, my dear Artemis!
