Ode to Cronus and the Spirits of the Golden Age
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
Blessed was the Golden Age of Cronus,
When fathers took responsibility
For their children, not driven off to be
Prisoners behind walls or under Earth,
In the deepest, darkest pits of Tartarus!
How blessed the people were in that age,
With the foresight to know how good things were!
They were not like our kind, always engaged
In a quest for greener pastures.
Under your reign people of character
Lived in peace with one another, Nature,
And the elder Deities, and had served
That order once acknowledged as greater
Than their own selfish egos. Those fair ends,
The ideals of virtue in good people,
Went uncompromised by mere means upraised
To a status of honor undeserved.
Then Zeus came to judge the ends of the Earth.
Overthrowing you his father, our kind,
A race of man deserving his judgment,
Took the place of that race of golden worth.
Yet, their blessed spirits still endure when
The cooling breezes blow over our skin,
And awaken our consciences within!
Old Lord, never have we needed them more!
May these spirits of the winds move us on,
To the character needed to restore
That peaceful order of your Golden Age!
