Like Lovers of Zeus (poem) 

Yet More Poems to the Invisible

Like Lovers of Zeus

When I come near you,
I fall backwards
in my joy.

There are waves
around your body,
scent coming
from your flesh.

If you held me
in your arms,
I think that I
would perish,
the way the lovers
of Zeus
went up in an
invisible flame
after the first glance.

Semele was a mortal woman in love with Zeus. Despite his warnings, she used a trick to lure him to come to her “in his full glory.” When he did so, she was immediately annihilated by the fire of his lightning bolts.
