POETRY: A Prayer To Eve by Kathleen Norris

A Prayer To Eve by Kathleen Norris

Mother of fictions
and of irony,
help us to laugh.

Mother of science
and the critical method,
keep up humble.

Muse of listeners,
hope of interpreters,
inspire us to act.

Bless our metaphors,
that we might eat them.

Help us to know, Eve,
the one thing we must do.

Come with us, muse of exile,
mother of the road.
