Blessed Cornucopia! Happy Lammas! "Like a tide it comes in: wave after wave of foliage and fruit, the nurtured and the wild."
Homeric Hymn 1 to Dionysus (trans. Evelyn-White)
"For some say, at Drakanon on windy Ikaros; and some, in Naxos, O [Dionysos] Insewn born of Zeus (eiraphiota dion genos); and others by the deep-eddying river Alpheios [Arkadian-Eleian river] that pregnant Semele bare you to Zeus the thunder-lover. And others yet, lord, say you were born in Thebes; but all these lie. The Father of men and gods [Zeus] gave you birth remote from men and secretly from white-armed Hera. There is a certain Nysa, a mountain most high and richly grown with woods, far off in Phoinike, near the streams of Aigyptos (lacuna) ... [Zeus announced the birth] ‘and men will lay up for her [Semele, the mother of Dionysos] many offerings in her shrines. And as these things are three, so shall mortals ever sacrifice perfect hecatombs to you at your feasts each three years.’
Kronion [Zeus] spoke and nodded with his dark brows. And the divine locks of the king flowed forward from his immortal head, and he made great Olympos reel. So spake wise Zeus and ordained it with a nod."
