Far Seeing Apollo

Far seeing Apollo
bestower of vision
keeper of truth

grant me a measure of your gifts
so i may begin to understand
how my present becomes my future

talented Phoebus
lend me your blessing
this day and always

teach me to temper my vision
with both wisdom and truth
for not all visions are to be shared

guide my voice to know
when to speak and
when to be silent

calm my body and my mind
opening me to your gifts

grant me the vision to carry your sight
the wisdom to understand that which i carry
and when time, the voice to carry your words
to this time and place
