Prayer to Zeus, Gaia and Helios for the Witnessing of an Oath

Prayer to Zeus, Gaia and Helios for the Witnessing of an Oath

A Poem by Hypnos

I call to Zeus, great lord of Olympus,
upholder of order, upholder of truth,
to hear the words I speak on this day,
to witness the oath I make before you.

I call to broad-bosomed Gaia, mother
of all that is, who knows of all her children,
to hear the words I speak on this day,
to witness the oath I make before you.

I call to all-seeing Helios, driver
of the chariot of the sun, bright-haired god,
to hear the words I speak on this day,
to witness the oath I make before you.

Hear me, O deathless ones; mark my words
on this day, in this place. Hold me to my vow,
I pray to you, for I bind myself
freely and willingly with this pledge.

A very lovely and wonderfully wrote poem. I greatly respect Gaia and because most of the people in my community (including my family) are christian I am hated for not choosing the same path as they did. Thank you for sharing your work.

I will read more and yes, others can be horribly judgmental and there is no need for it.
Nicely done. I love the topic so off the beaten path. Has a good draw pulling the reader through as well.

This is interesting... Why do you use two Greek gods though? Or rather Greko-Roman gods.
