Poseidon

Poseidon, holder of all the seas,
of all the many waters of the world,
I honor you. Lord of the blackest depths,
master of horses, patron of seamen,
we see you in the high-cresting waves,
in foam-dashed shores, in mighty ships made weak
by your hand. Poseidon, ocean god,
ruler of the deep, soul of this sphere,
anchor of mankind in your swirling chaos,
I thank you for your many gifts, both common
and sublime–for the means to commerce
and to play, for the beasts of the sea,
for sweet water to drink, for a way
to the wider world. All praise to the sea-god!
