5-7-5 Ancient Greek mythology writing prompt entry

Writing Prompt
Write a 5-7-5 syllable poem with three lines. The first line has 5 syllables, the second line has 7 syllables and the last line has 5 syllables. The topic is ancient greek mythology.


Author Notes
Illustration of the goddess, Artemis, by Harold Price, from a book my great-aunt, Miriam Cox, wrote in 1956 called "The Magic and the Sword," Row, Peterson and Company, p. 40. My great-aunt has already passed away, but I inherited an inscribed copy of her book addressed to my father and uncles. The book is out of print. Apollo was envious of his own sister, Artemis, the goddess of the hunt and the moon, simply because she had finally found a mortal lover, Orion, whom she had fallen in love with. Apollo's eyesight was slightly better than hers, and from a distance he saw Orion wading in the sea. So Apollo challenged Artemis in a contest to shoot the object, which turned out to be Orion, her love. As always, Artemis' aim was perfectly straight. Orion was mortally wounded, but she placed him in the skies as the starry constellation Orion, with three stars forming his belt, and another three stars forming his sword. His hunting dog, Sirius, is another nearby constellation (paraphrased from "The Magic and the Sword," pp. 39-41).
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
