And so as I had started on the 3 Graces I just had to finish all 3 …..
It is said that the 3 Graces (The Charis) lived on Mount Olympus , their Father was Zeus and their mother Euronyme. The graces were all personifications of Fertility and were adept at dance, singing and poetry. Usually the Graces were attending the Greek goddess of Beauty Aphrodite and her companion Eros. According to Greek poet Pindar, these enchanting goddesses were created to fill the world with pleasant moments and goodwill. The Graces were also associated with the Greek underworld and the Eleusian Mysteries.
The Greek Goddess Thalia of good cheer , abundance and plenty. Her name means “banquet or “flowering”…There was also a Thalia who was one of the 9 muses.
The Greek Goddess Algaea was the goddess of beauty, adornment, splendor and glory.She represented the creation of objects of beauty and artistic adornment.
The Greek Goddess Euphrosyne was the personification of Joy, mirth and merriment.
She Walks in Beauty
She walks in Beauty, like the night Of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all that's best of dark and bright Meet in her aspect and her eyes: Thus mellowed to that tender light Which Heaven to gaudy day denies. One shade the more, one ray the less, Had half impaired the nameless grace Which waves in every raven tress, Or softly lightens o'er her face; Where thoughts serenely sweet express, How pure, how dear their dwelling-place. And on that cheek, and o'er that brow, So soft, so calm, yet eloquent, The smiles that win, the tints that glow, But tell of days in goodness spent, A mind at peace with all below, A heart whose love is innocent!
