Hymn to Epona
Graceful and brilliant Epona,
Lady who dances like the wind,
sure-footed and swift,
whose children were the wealth
of nobles, warriors, and kings,
we praise You for Your beauty,
Your agility, Your speed.
In times of old Your name
was on the lips of all,
and Your prayers echoed across the land,
ecstatic with reverence and awe toward You.
The thunder of hooves along the roads
that linked city to city, land to land,
was a drumbeat that sang out Your name,
and now, too, as we see the horses galloping
over moor and field and plain,
too do we cry out our thanks for Your gifts
and Your majesty, Your wisdom,
and the four-footed friends
You have seen fit to give us.
O Epona, long will the ages remember You,
and Your name will resound down from yesteryear
through today and long into the future.
