What Were the Elysian Fields in Greek Mythology?
The Elysian Fields or Elysium refer to a beautiful meadow in Homer where the favored of Zeus enjoy perfect happiness. This was the ultimate paradise a hero could achieve: basically an ancient Greek Eden. http://ancienthistory.about.com/od/aeneid/g/101909ElysianFields.htm
This is a poem written for my partner from his best friend
The Elysian Fields
How refreshing the soft breezes are,
That stir the Elysian Fields,
Where all gentle souls abide-
In Paradise, where I reside
Free of propensity’s force,
I follow transcendence’s course.
Beyond the threshold of time,
Toward the Throne of God I climb.
No separation of sin-
God’s love guides the Way within.
No lust to wander afar,
When in God’s Presence we are.
No more need to keep apace;
Here vanity has no place.
Hence, all things renown before,
Shall, important, be no more.
Souls in perfect peace may grow-
No tomorrow, nor more sorrow,
Nourished by ineffable graces,
In love’s divine Oasis.
