To Hephaistos I

I haven’t written a poem in donkeys years! But I felt like giving it a go, since it is something I’d like to get better at. This is dedicated to Hephaistos, a god I have a lot of affection for.

Hephaistos is the one,
Who led men out of caves,
When men lived like wild beasts.

Thanks to The Sooty God,
We live in safer homes,
Life is easier,
We can travel the world with ease,
And even travel to the stars!

Oh Famed Worker,
Continue to guide us,
To make our lives easier,
And further our advancement.

But prevent us from ruin,
Caused by the folly of man.

If you have critique, share it! I’d love to improve.

    Khaire. This is a good poem and I hope Hephaistos likes it. He has made our lives so easy and enjoyable. Not only do we have homes that provide everything we need (heating, coolness, light, water, safety, etc.) but also with modern technology we have awesome things such as laptops, reading tablets, and mp3-players.

    The god has quite a beneficial influence in our lives, and it is good to see that you have a lot of affection for him; not often do I come across blogs by modern polytheists who even mention him.

    All ileth Hephaiste.

      Thank you! I find it quite astonishing that he isn’t mentioned more by modern polytheists when you consider the beneficial influence he has on our lives.
