Y is for Youth

Yet again, this letter does not exist in the Greek alphabet, but I managed to find something (it's only cheating a little!)

Hebe was the goddess of Youth (hehe) in Greek Mythology, and the personification of youth and immortality. She was the cupbearer for the gods and goddesses of Mount Olympus, serving them nectar and ambrosia. She was the daugher of Xeus and Hera and was married to the hero Heracles when he arrived at the home of the gods.


  1. Bearing in mind the life of the Gods it is a wonder any of them made it out of their youth.

    I am more a bacon butty man, so I guess I will never make it as a Greek God.

  2. You're not cheating at all! I was wondering how you'd come up with Y, but you did it beautifully!

  3. Hi Laura,
    Just popped across from the A to Z list and what a find! Great list and I'm looking forward to going back to A and reading them all :) Have you enjoyed A to Zing?
    PS I'm also doing an MA in creative writing - I'm at MMU

  4. Interesting use of the letter Y here Laura, somebody needs to tell the lovely lady that she's accidentally exposing her boob in that portrait though haha!

  5. Goddess of youth would be a fun one. I imagine it involves hanging out with a lot of young, imaginative kids. Always fun.

  6. I think you've done an exceptional job at coming up with a letter Y post. I really enjoyed your A-Z theme Laura!

  7. Goddess of youth, great choice, we can all do with her help on occasions. Have taken a look at your poems, Laura, they are looking great. You must have worked so hard on them.

  8. Good job, Laura. I think it's hard to come up with something interesting and unique when you get toward the end of the alphabet. Yikes. But you came up with something special.

  9. Goddess of youth. I can think of worse.
