Dawn

Ho Eos, rosy dactylos parting dawn
mark these curtains and part them
torchbearer against the mirk
standardbearer to this chariot
as fingers part that shroud
bring life and animation
there can be no oracle without light
no illumination by muses without fire
only languid Promethian pools~
bold Nyx flees from thee,
the only to stand against Zeus and live
and so part Aether now
and light rule the day!
Ho Eos, red-fingered dawn
cleaver of inky shades
harbinger of day
light the reed torch
and loosen these reins!
