O Great Nyx

O Great Nyx

A Poem by Celeste Lucy Zaveri

A poem about Nyx, the Goddess personification of night.

O great Nyx,
You who were born of Chaos
You who married Erebus
And gave us Night

You are a heroine goddess,
Giving birth to strife, joy, and progress
Bringing us the sacred things in our world

You who brought us Adicia, our Injustice,
So we could be prepared for the unfairness of life

And the Moirai who brought us our destinies,
Who made our past, present, and future

And Megaira, who brought us knowledge
That we can do better than we are now

And Apate who softens what we think life is,
Who gives us a comfort called foolishness

You, Nyx, whose face I see in the moon,
Whose form I see in the gathered stars
And many constellations

You, Nyx, I feel your wrath and love,
Your bravery and unwavering
Your forgiving ways and love

O Great Nyx!
