~ Father of Song of Golden Lyre ~

Father of song of golden lyre
Play sweetly
That slumber I may find:

Charmer of all living things
Divine your hymns, divine your strings
Venerated by humankind
Soother of lonely souls that pine

I long this weary body to rest
This cage of cloth to divest
Free and fetal there to lay
Archaic notes, play do play

Pluck your strings thereby coax
Those purest of lulling notes
Pluck oh virtuoso rare!
‘Tis my plea, my fervent prayer

Father of song of golden lyre
Play sweetly
That slumber I may find.
