Men you strike

Men you strike
and the gods'
dauntless spirits alike,
and Eros helps you, O Kupris
with wings' swift
interplay of light:
now he flies above earth,
now above sea-crash
and whirl of salt:
he enchants beasts
who dwell in the hills
and shoals in the sea-depth:
he darts gold wings
maddening their spirits:
he charms all born of earth
(all whom Helios visits,
fiery with light)
and men's hearts:
you alone, Kupris,
creator of all life,
reign absolute.
