Orphic prayer to the South Wind


The FUMIGATION from FRANKINCENSE. Address to south! 
WIDE coursing gales, whose lightly leaping feet
With rapid wings the air's wet bosom beat,
Approach benevolent, swift-whirling pow'rs,
With humid clouds the principles of flow'rs:
For flow'ry clouds are portion'd to your care,
To send on earth from all surrounding air.
Bear, blessed pow'rs, these holy rites attend,
And fruitful rains on earth all-parent send.
