(I hope it's OK to post this here.  I've never written such a thing before, but I promised I would, and He kept up His end.)

Hail skilled Asklepios, divine physician!
What blessing is better than health?   
In gratitude to You I offer this.

Hail heroic Asklepios, Coronis’ son,
Who traveled with Iason.
You restored dead Argonauts to life!

Hail Asklepios, father of Hygeia,
Also of plague-halting Podalirius,
And of Machaon, who healed Philoctetes.

Hail philanthropic Asklepios, healer of hurts
That might justly be called small,
But are sharply felt by us here below.

Hail kind Asklepios, son of Apollon!!
Who heals by means of dreams and serpents:
You healed the child for ten dice.
You healed my dear one for the asking.

I'm not a Hellenic Recon or Hellenic anything, but I just had to pop in and say that the poem is just beautiful. I'm sure Asklepios appreciates it. Cheesy

Thank you, Shadowcat!  That was my first attempt at religious poetry of any sort.

And since you have the C-word in your handle, I'll confess that the healed one is my cat Caligula Puck.   Smiley

That was very good for the first try! I couldn't do half that well.

LOL! I've got four cats myself. I'm glad that Caligula healed. Cheesy

Well, I am a creative writer, I just usually do short stories.

Four cats!  Cool.  My lease limits me to two pets or I'd've taken in a few more for sure.

I write fanfiction. Tongue

Yes, four. We originally got just two, about two months apart. The third was a dump - a certain ex girlfriend of my father's left her cat behind. I wouldn't let him go to the shelter so he stayed with us. The fourth was something of a kismet thing. I was a shelter volunteer and fell in love with a cat I swear knew I was gonna be his owner.

Caligula Puck was actually owned by a little old lady whose grandkid became allergic when he was 6-7 months old.  My other cat, Elvissa, was dumped at a vet clinic where I worked.

What sort of fanfic?

Oh, that's a shame for the little boy's family, having to give up Caligula.

Stargate: SG-1 fanfiction. (Actually, I focus on the Tok'ra sub-fandom. Wink )

It was a shame for them, but gosh was I glad to get him--I'd been in love with him since they brought him in for his 6 week vaccs!   

Not familiar with the show.  I don't keep up with many TV series of any genre anymore, for no good reason.

Wow, that's a lucky turn for you... (though not for them).

Ahh... Cheesy I don't watch very many television programs myself, just a few. Stargate, CSI, Crossing Jordan, Voyager, etc.

Thank you!  I'm starting the second year of a two-year intensive.  After that...I don't know.  And that's ok for now.  Smiley
