The Elysian Fields




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.


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.
