Hermes Agon Submission

To Hermes
by Melia Phosphorou

To Hermes,

The god who watches and intervenes,

Who travels with and guides,

Who has saved my life more than once,

Who has led me unscathed as cars crashed behind me

or as my own crumpled with me inside,

He who has listened as I prayed for the safe return

of one I loved,

And gone between to carry hopes, prayers, and dreams

to the other deathless ones,

with whom I had not yet built kharis,

but wanted to know.

We praise you!
