CANENS

Roman Songs and Singing Goddess

Goddess of Soulful Sad Songs

She was the wife of King Picus — he who was picked on by CIRCE, turned into a boar and then into a woodpecker.

Obviously CANENS was not happy about this and sang sad songs of a soul-searing intensity as she sought the love of her life.

Eventually she faded away and the Romans made her the Divinity of Song. If only she had listened out for the Woody Woodpecker woodblock rhythms.
