Prayer for Safety At Sea

Be with me now, leaving the Isle of Pelops,
mighty sons of Zeus and of Leda, now in
kindliness of heart appear to me, Castor
and Polydeuces:

you who wander over the wide earth, over
all the sea's domain on your flying horses,
easily delivering mortal men from
death and terror:
swept in far descent to the strong-built vessel's
masthead, you ride shining upon the cables,
through the weariness of the dark night bringing
light to the black ship.
invocation to the Dioscuri., Alcaeus of Mytilene, c. 575 B.C. [x]
