Hail Hermes

Hermes
Though I speak your name not
in the various letterings
that I have urge to write,
know that in writing them
I honor you also.
I never needed to write,
not a single letter,
until you entered that rite
and set me to giggling.
Whatever gambling game
you played to win me
from ivy-tressed Dionysos
has caused me to continually
write, praise, laugh and honor
both daimons and deities.
Hail Hermes, silver tongued thief,
Gambling Fiend and Irreverent One.
May I continue to honor you
through my offerings to others.
