Fair Aphrodite

molly sitting naked in tree in springtime woodland being Aphrodite

“No days such honored days as these! While yet
Fair Aphrodite reigned, men seeking wide
For some fair thing which should forever bide
On earth, her beauteous memory to set
In fitting frame that no age could forget,
Her name in lovely April’s name did hide,
And leave it there, eternally allied
To all the fairest flowers Spring did beget.”
–  Helen Hunt Jackson

    I spend a lot of time walking through woods, but never come acrosssights like this. Think I needs to find me a new forest to explore.

    Fantastic image. I need some outdoor shots ??

  • Jaime

    You look so very beautiful, and goddess-like in that shot!

    It’s a beautiful picture.

    I love the poem too. I’d never have thought that April comes from Aphrodite (my favourite goddess), because the Romans generally used their own names for the gods when naming months, etc. Eg March, from Mars, not from the Greek Ares.Soyou’d expect them to use some version of the name Venus. But the Etruscans (who ruled Rome for a long time) called the goddess not Venus but Apru.

    So April is named after the goddess of love! I was very happy to learn this.

    I like the poem for lots of other reasons, and will look for more Helen Hunt Jackson.

    But the photo is wonderful, and you carry off being fair Aphrodite wonderfully well!
