Poseidon Dêlios

All honors are due to Poseidon Dêlios,
who raised the sacred island from the sea.
Without that holy place of sight
the world would lack prophecy.

Great god of the ocean foresaw
a failing of mortal thought:
that to externalize in law
would distinguish might from ought.

The insight that we lack
is within the gods, each one,
but none could make this clear
without a mortal tongue.

In Delos lay all hope
as Poseidon raised it high,
providing tools to ask the gods
of what and when and why.

Honored were you at that place
and honored should you be.
For now Apollon and great Zeus
bring truth through prophecy.
