underflow: (athena)
( 2 January 2012 01:17 am)
Bright-helmed Athena of the steady gaze,
mistress of many skills, bearer of much knowledge,
ever-insightful one who cherishes reason,
who holds wisdom dear. Athena of the aegis,
spear-shaker, holder of the Gorgon shield, war-maid
who steps into battle with lightness and grace
as if it were dance, the clash of swords ringing
like cymbals to your ears. Athena who rewards
the clever and the brave with fair fame, friend of those
who face the world with open eyes and guarded heart,
for those who make their own luck will find their fortune
grows strong and stronger. Goddess, I praise you in all things.

underflow: (for the fairest)

I praise comely Eris, daughter of dark-cloaked Nyx,
wrathful one who knows her own worth, who knows the purpose
of conflict and rage, who knows that there are times
when vengeance is the proper response, when anger
is fitting. Eris, spirit of discord, spirit
of strife and of striving, spirit of rivalry,
in times of old it was well known that yours
is a world of nature and need, that you see well
the struggle within us. Eris of the battlefield,
Eris of the golden apple, I honor you.

Great Hades, master of the dark afterworld,
honored host of our beloved dead, husband
of fair-haired Persephone, holder of the riches
of the deep earth, eldest son of full-hearted Rhea
and Cronus of the shining sickle, I praise you.
Hades, kind one, unyielding one, gracious granter
of respite to the suffering, of welcome
to those who have passed from our world, I thank you
for your gift of shelter and hospitality.

Gentle Hypnos, child of night-dwelling Nyx,
master of far-flung Erebos, far beyond
the path of the sun, I honor you, I thank you
for your blessings. Dark is your hall, O Hypnos,
dark and deep; red are the poppies that grow
at your gate. Young and fair you are, O Hypnos,
so beautiful in repose. Kind and good you are,
O brother of death, O granter of rest
to the weary, of respite to those whose need
for your comfort is desperate and dire. Hypnos,
fair-browed one whose gift of sleep restores us
to ourselves each day anew, I praise you.
