Hymn to Poseidon

July 1st, 2008

As I’ve mentioned before, my wife, Rev. Lady Bella Sundancer, is a bard. She has written this hymn to the watery Lord Poseidon in the style of the Orphics. Hope you enjoy it.

Hymn to Poseidon

Hail Poseidon, Lord of the Sea
King of the Waves, your kingdom is vast
From bow to stern, from prow to mast
In your chariot of many-legged horses
You ride endlessly, tirelessly up and down
Over the many waves
Your nymphish daughters frolic around you
Lord of many moods, many faces
You are sometimes calm, sometimes raging
Your ceaseless beating can wear the rocks to sand
Make kingdoms fall, bring fear to man
King of murkiness, King of the clear waters
All the treasures of the depths are yours
From sea folk to fallen gold
Endless drowned sailors make up your court
At your most joyful you are triumphant
Leading the way in your splendid chariot of foam
Your trident raised in glorious salute
Lord of the occult, you guard the magical essence
The transformative power of alchemy
The mystical knowledge of the arcane
Lord of Oceans, we pray to you for safe travel,
Good luck, and a clear path to desire

—Rev. Lady Bella Sundancer
