Amanda Aremisia Forrester
Who dwells among men!
The snakey God!
Immortal son of Apollo!
May you smile on me
In all my endeavors
May you walk beside me, glorious one
Your hands guiding mine
Your voice in my ear
Your holy dream-giving snakes at my feet
So I may heal the sick
So I may give rest to the weary
So I may feed the poor
So I may make the lives of my fellow man better
Asklepios, mortal-born, ascended to Heaven,
This is my prayer.
May you hear my heartfelt cry, and rejoice.
