Roman God Of The Sea

Neptune raises his trident; the waves obey the command.

They reach toward the sky and then bow down toward the sand.

He rules over the ocean and all life teeming within.

He holds back intruders and aids the plight of men.

His strength is unparalleled, his power unwavering.

Known also as the Earth-shaker he leaves, not only the sea but the land, quavering.

His temper should not be underestimated nor the devotion of his followers.

Typhoons, thunder, and lightning, and all manner of sea creatures do his bidding, yielding many sorrowers.
