prayer

Listen, Moirai (Fates) ... hear our prayers ...
send us rose-bloomed Eunomia ( Good Order in civic government)
and her bright-throned sisters Dike (Justice)
and garland-wearing Eirana (Peace),
and make this city forget its heavy-hearted misfortunes.
- Greek Lyric V Anonymous Fragments 1018 (from Stobaeus, Anthology)
