Dioʹne (3 syl.)

.

Venus, who sprang from the froth of the sea, after the multilated body of Uʹranus (the sky) had been thrown there by Saturn.        

“So young Dionē, nursed beneath the waves,

And rocked by Nereids in their coral caves … .

Lisped her sweet tones, and tried her tender smiles.”
