Come to me Achelous
river without tears
Carry me distant
away from my fears

Direction is onward
Olympus bestows

 Hermes in orbit
directing the flow

At home in your waters
whose currents surpass
Defining my history
from first to the last

Your torrent unbridled
the eye of the storm
I drift in your motion
—alive and reborn
