Ariadne: Light of the World

Theseus would lack a name
If it weren't for Ariadne
And her honor roll ways.

Ariadne,
Daughter of Minos,
Granddaughter of Helios,
Ultimately the wife of Dionysus,

Give Theseus a single string,
A linen thread,
That Theseus might find his way
Through the dark labyrinth
To stunning light

After defeating the Minotaur.

Ariadne gives Theseus
A place
In the human story,
A tapestry woven from beautiful souls,
Magical threads.

She gives him life.
He gives her strength.
