Omphalos of Pythos at Parnassus

Omphalos of Pythos at Parnassus

O baetylus within antron adyton of holy Pythia

thrice renowned for having through Rhea

having cheated consecuting Time,

wrapping babe Zeus in swaddling bands

to then give the gruesome ogre Cronus

false gift of stony chew twas doomed

to spit out upon the sacred ground of earth,

thus after he grew old Zeus sent great hunting birds from ends of earth with identical eagle’s speed

Time was unable to bleed to find the apex apogee

of world’s very center, where the distinguished omphalos was finally placed at last to command the timeless thoughts of all from height of depth endless begot the eternal deep of truthful rock.
