Ode to Hermes

by Sam Mosher

God of thieves and trickery,
travelers and merchants,
Hermes the clever one,
The herald of the gods
A son of Zeus
And of Maia, a Titan's daughter.
Fleet of foot and quick of mind,
Full of eloquence and cunning.

He travels freely,
Between the world of god and mortal.
He helps the dying man complete his final journey
With a flash he can vanish,
Beneath his magic cloak,
May you, O Hermes
live forever in neverending glory

Hermes the clever one
The herald of the gods.
