The Ancient Greeks believed in a goddess named Philophrosyne. She was said to be the Goddess of kindness, welcome and friendliness. I was so intrigued when reading up the little bits of information about her and so, I decided to write a poem... For you Philophrosyne.

Oh lief Philophrosyne to thee I pray,

‘Tis I who on one knee bows to thy glory,

Alloweth thy gentle handeth to glide across this world so elegantly,

Alloweth thy tales of kindness to becometh our children’s night-time story.

 

Oh lief Philophrosyne to thee I pray,

May thee still bless this world with thy kind ways,

Alloweth the words of this world beest as eloquent as a harp's calling,

And its actions followeth the footsteps of thy eternal grace.

 

Oh lief Philophrosyne to thee I pray,

May thee gaze ov'r this earth and its people,

So that we may live with a warmth in our hearts,

And a kindness that shalt never shatter another's life to mere pieces.

 

Oh lief Philophrosyne to thee I pray,

May thee correct us at which hour we has't done wrong,

So that we can see the error of our ways,

Forever we shalt dance to thy friendly and compassionate song.

 

Oh lief Philophrosyne to thee I pray,

May thither beest a day whither thy affection overtakes all evil,

whither goodness resides and evil is still banished,

A world so halcyon, a world so peaceful.

 

Oh lief Philophrosyne to thee I pray,

To thee I shalt continueth to pray until I am no more,

For thy teachings art the essence of living morally,

Without thee... This world is destined to beest nevermore.
