Apollo, God of the light of conscience,
Lovely sounds Your lyre breaking the silence
With music so kind to sensitive ears!
You encourage us to confront our fears
In how You vanquished the monstrous Dragon.
To where Your light had come, from there had gone
Darkness, for there it could not stay, nor now,
Nor ever can, for in Your light we know
How to act with compassion. At Delphi,
Your Priestess helped worshipers to defy
The woes of ignorance, to know the will
Of the Deities, and thus to fulfill
The highest potentials which they could reach.
Therefore, You are the God whom I beseech:
Would You show me both sides of everything,
To keep the balance from which goodness springs?
Apollo, before You we are like steeds,
Wild, roaming north to south and east to west.
To serve Your purposes, our spirits need
Your Hands to subdue the goad in our breasts.
Ravings of the medium thus were reined
In to communicate advice, hidden
At first, which then the Priestess had explained
In common terms through her psychic vision.
While stallions may rear, and mares may whinny,
Through Your taming Hands, each of us may turn
Onto the road of magnanimity.
Even a fool sooner or later learns!
As at the Oracle of Delphi once,
So You give wisdom unto me, a dunce!
