Peaceful harmony is Her creed

So precious are the bonds of family to Her

That when Apollo and Poseidon began to quarrel for Her hand

She forsook marriage altogether

So as not to be the cause of conflict

Where before there had been only goodwill.

She desires not power or fame,

Neither does She feel the need to found Her own dynasty

When there are already so many needy souls to attend to.

She is The Heart of All Things,

The Axis round which we revolve,

The peaceful calm that all Gods cycle back to

(Eventually, when Their tempestuous rages have ended)

And She calmly invites Them back in,

For a hot meal and some pleasant conversation.

Hestia is the Home,

She is the fire of loveā€¦
