Athena

This is from my old blog, the Geekie Hellenist. Enjoy.

This is the Evocation to Athena. I hope that you enjoy it.

 

I call to Athena, clear-eyed daughter of Zeus; from his head you burst forth, all in brilliant armor, a warrior from your first breath, born with all the skill, all the insight, all the guile of an old warlord.

In ancient times were you well honored, goddess; in every town your name was spoken with love and reverence; above all in Athens, the finest of cities, did you receive the greatest devotion.

Bolt Athena whose favor falls on the brave and on the clever, who hones the wit of the scholar and quickens the nimble fingers of the artisan, who offers counsel reasoned and reflective, farsighted builder of cities who leads humanity towards concord and community, granter of the gift of civilization, I call to you.
