This book will take the reader on an exciting, mystical and exhilarating journey back in time, where he may examine, learn and reflect upon the mythological history of our present day culture. This collection of original poems is rooted in the popular historical religious beliefs and anecdotes of Ancient Greece and Rome, elements and fragments of which have been handed down through the centuries and have profoundly influenced our lives. In our daily discourse we continually employ meaningful and descriptive expressions, which are derived from mythological tales and personalities, such as "Trojan horse," "Pandora's box," "Gordian knot," "bacchanalian," "Spartan," "platonic," "aurora," "Herculean," "Achilles heel" and many more. We have also named cities and planets after them, such as "Athens" and "Jupiter." In this collection the reader will be pleasantly introduced to the origins of these expressions through the delightful medium of lyrical poetry.
