You tried to tame a moonbeam,

To harness a star.

You tried to grab hold of the ocean

And learned only how to fall.

-

Such a winged beauty, that stallion—

A steed for the gods.

But you are no god, boy.

Do you now know what a fool you were?

-

The family of Olympus is not trustworthy.

They are capricious and care only for themselves.

It may have appeared she wanted to help you,

But for Wisdom it was always a game.

-

Do not accept the aid they give.

That horse was never for you.

You tried to tame a moonbeam

But Selene and her children were always above you.

-

Believe as you will, say what you like,

But I know the truth.

You hobble down the streets, broken for your pride,

And the moonbeam you tried to claim is wheeling across the sky.
