King Pentheus

by Z. I. Sadeq

Take my hand Pentheus

Together we’ll run through fields

And swim in cool streams

Laugh while the gilly fish bite our toes


Pentheus take my hand

Together we’ll pick blackberries and honeysuckles

And run through the woods

Shout at our long shadows


Take my hand Pentheus

For I won’t tell Mother

We might grow horns as satyrs

Dancing with nymphs


Set aside your laurel wreath

O! Pentheus

Abide with me in unity

Camp with me and the earth

And starry sky

King Pentheus
