Danae


Danae: Mother of the Greek Hero Perseus

Your father kept you locked up in your brazen tower
for the oracle said that he will be killed by his grandson.
But he could not hide you from Zeus
who visited you in the form of a golden shower.

Cast out to sea by your father
after falling pregnant with Zeus's child.
Do not fear, for you will be washed to the shores of Seriphos
and you and Perseus rescued by Dictys.
