Helios and Clymene

Helios drove his sun chariot across the sky
And in one mystical magic moment
Clouds and ocean waves seemed to embrace
Ocean nymphs danced around Helios’ chariot
Cupid having shot an arrow into Helios
Now proceeded to shoot one into the ocean nymph Clymene
And Helios and Clymene would wed
A magical mystical moment
Depicted in marble on a conch shell
The artist unknown
Perhaps some Pygmalion like figure who lost his Galatea
And a mermaid gave him this gift in return
And as his gift to the world
This work of art.
