Poem for Athena

Athena Tritogenia
Daughter of Metis
You who inspired Odysseus
Inspire me now with wisdom
As I struggle daily to craft my life.

Athena Politia
Protector of Cities
You who inspired Pericles
Inspire my social conscience
As I create a better world for my daughter

Athena Goddess of many Men
Who is many things to many people
Inspire my words and my writing
So that I may bring your gifts
To those who may read this poem

This song I offer you, and another at a future date.
