Lost Ampelos

My dear Ampelos,
To him we say adios.

Lost in the tragic days of yesteryear—
A proud boy with no fear.

He hitched a ride on a wild bull,
Set the tides of faith on the pull.

The Moon Goddess he set out to mock,
But her power soon sent him quite a shock.

He was such a handsome satyr.
How was he smashed so quickly into a crater?

We all feel the loss of Great Dionysus's youthful paramour.
Nothing else has ever made the god quite as sore.

Though filled with sorrow, he turned his love into a vine.
Ampelos's last gift to the world is his wine.

Their sweet passion is still reflected in the world today.
Remember them and all boys in love as you sip your chardonnay.

This poem is about: 
Our world
