I pick up a musical instrument
I start the writing process.
I sing the first verse
I recite a poem
for the times,
I decide to lecture
as I speak,
or as I listen.
I call on Sarawati to focus my mind.
I call onto Thoth to enchant my words.
I call Fu Hsi to speak through my fingers.
I call forth Hermes to improve my voice.
I call next Apollo to steady my hands.
I call upon Odin to shape my poems.
I call last Enki to lend me his ear.
Too help me shape my writings.
Too let me develop my voice.
Too develop my diplomacy.
Too teach me the universal language.
Too speak to me with reason.
Too send me your messages.
Too help me find my calling.
