Orphic Hymn 1 to Hekate

Hekate Enoidia, Triodite, lovely dame,
Of earthly, watery and celestial frame,
Sepulchral in a saffron veil arrayed,
Pleased with dark ghosts that wander through the shade.
Perseia, solitary goddess, hail!
The world’s key-bearer, never doomed to fail.
In stags rejoicing, huntress, nightly seen,
And drawn by bulls, unconquerable queen.
Leader, nymph, nurse, on mountains wandering,
Hear the suppliants who with holy rites thy power revere,
And to the herdsman with a favoring mind draw near.
