A Cleansing Prayer to Apollo

I originally wrote this August 31st, 2017. It seemed about time for it to be published.

Hail Apollo!
Lord of Cleansing!
Purifier of Purifiers!

O Lord Whose hands hold plague and purification,
Whose forms are all arrayed in Beauty,
You have brought a beautiful cleansing!

You have blessed the leaves of bay;
They are holy!
They are holy!
They are holy!

You have blessed the lustral waters;
They are cleansed!
They are cleansed!
They are cleansed!

You have blessed the khernips;
I am pure!
I am pure!
I am pure!

Thank You, Who has cleansed me:
Acestor! Iatromantis! Lykeios!
Hail Apollo!

Sweet apples bloom red under Your light

The orchards sing with birds

The bees alight among the flowers

You set the music of Summer

Glorious light dapples down

The nymphai and naiades dance in the holy places

Trees and waters sway

Your gentle song brings dance

Warmth spreads in the field

The winter harvest is sewn

The summer harvest is taken

Your Presence brings life

Hail Apollo, ever-shining, ever-brilliant, ever-glorious!
