PBP: Nyx, Goddess of the Night
Nyx, Goddess of the Night,
Primeval Lady, Starry One
Born of Khaos, Wife of Darkness,
Mother of Light, of Day
And of a darker brood.
Wing’d One or Charioteer,
I love to watch thee overtake the day.
Thy shadow slowly covers the garish light,
allowing me to see the far-off places
which I will not visit in this lifetime.
On thy dusky train ride Sleep and Dreams,
sometimes aloof or harsh,
sometimes gentle and kind.
Hide not, Oh Mighty Lady, from my sight
those that use your night for evil ends,
but aid me in protecting me and mine,
so that we can continue to enjoy your arrival
as thy shadow once again hides the light.
Some of my favorite songs call to mind this goddess…
