Prayer to Epione for the Soothing of Pain

Prayer to Epione for the Soothing of Pain

A Poem by Hypnos

Tender-hearted Epione, fair-haired bride
of wise Asklepios, mother of clever
Hygeia, gentle one who gives comfort and ease
to those whose hurt has passed the point of bearing,
kindly goddess whose soft hands soothe all agonies,
learned one who knows all remedies, all reliefs.
Epione, grant to this wo/man your gift of rest
and respite, keep at bay the torment and the pain.

Great prayers. I'm certain the Greek gods are delighted to have a bard praise them and call for their help and guidance through beautiful verse. As I said before, you should write a Greek epic, with Greek heroes and the interference of Greek gods. That would be awesome, especially coming from a poet like you.
