Promise of Protection

Based on the structure and rhythm of "St Theresa's Bookmark"
Let nothing befear thee: let nothing befright thee;
The darkness has passed and dawn's glory is here.
The wingtips that brushed thee, are driven before thee;
The gods shall watch o'er thee, oh child of their heart.

No nightmare shall harm thee, by darkness or daylight;
No creature shall haunt thee; in spirit or mind.
This thing that assailed thee, shall not dent thy courage;
Nor any more like it, o'ercome thy bright strength.
By this song I wash thee, of all of that evil;
Be free as thou once were, oh dear to their heart
