To Tethys

by

Mark Andrew Holmes


Hail Tethys, Lady of the nourishing waters,

All the fresh water of the world is yours to govern,

All the rain-clouds which gather to water the earth

Are yours to gather.

You are the mother of all the world's rivers and streams,

The mother of the world's springs and fountains are you.

By fresh water, companioned by Eileytheia, you nurture the planet, Grandmother Tethys, wife of great Okeanos!
