Collection: The song of Occyrhoea

Occyrhoea was a tempestuous and proud centaur,
Who lived in the hills of Epirus.
She was the daughter of Chiron, the wise centaur,
Who had taught him the art of reading the future.
One day she had a terrible vision,
That a hero would come and kill his father.
Occyrhoea was frightened, and panicked,
She wanted to warn Chiron in order to save him.
She galloped towards his cave, where he lived,
But she arrived too late, because he was already injured.
He had been hit by a poisoned arrow,
Launched by Heracles, the son of Zeus.
Occyrhoea was sorry, and hugged him,
And she told him that she loved him, and that she would regret it.
Chiron smiles at him, and tells him not to cry,
Because he was going to be freed, and join the gods.
He gave his place to Prometheus, the chained titan,
And he went up to Olympus, where he was welcomed.
Occyrhoea was relieved, and thanked him,
She kept her gift, as an inheritance from her father.
She lived happily, among her sisters,
And never saw Heracles again in his life.
