A prayer to Hypnos and Pasithee (Sleep and Dreams)
by Ms. Kay Jay
Age Group: Adult
Soft-winged Hypnos, bestower of sleep,
Bring waters of Lethe, having drawn deep.
Release our onus in the river of forget,
Dissolve any fear, burden, or debt.
Father of slumber and child of night,
Protect our repose till we wake with the light.
Graceful Pasithee, Mother of dreams,
Unravel our cares pulled too tight at the seams.
Garland in poppies, provide us with rest.
Grant to us reveries of joys yet expressed.
Relax the pull from thoughts of the day.
Let night’s soft illusions gently hold sway.
Hypnos, Pasithee, granters of peace,
Give unto us a night’s sweet release.
Author's Notes: The was written on New Year's Day 2014 to accompany work on a magical tincture to help an insomniac friend. The seven couplets were to be spoken over potion as a dedication while it steeps for a month (dark moon to dark moon) . Feel free to use/duplicate/share, just keep my name attached if you do. Thanks - K. Jessica Sokol
