Prayer …………………………………………….. Rev. I.P. Powell

"Goddess of the Island Seas"

Sung by the Audience.

Goddess of the Island Seas.

1. Sing no more the fair Aegean

Where the floating Cyclads shine,

Nor the honeyed slopes Hyblaean,

Nor the blue Sicilian brine.

Sing no storied realms of Morning

Robed in twilight memories.

Sing the land beyond adorning

With her zone if inland seas.

2. Here the gods of Hellas wandered

When they left their hills and brooks;

Here a Pan has piped and pondered;

Here the nymphs have filled the nooks;

Here the Satyrs, without warning,

Creep upon the Naiades;

Here the golden god of Morning

Rises from the inland seas.

3. Now the eyes that are anointed

See the blossom-tide of spring;

Ours the blissful age appointed,

Ours the clime the poets sing.

Hark, O Maid of Western Morning—

Wave and woodland, brook and breeze

Hail thee, Queen, beyond adorning,

Girdled with thy inland seas.

4. Lo, the sacred fires of knowledge

In thy temples are enshrined—

Through the cloisters of thy college

Choruses eternal wind!

And, all other incense scorning,

Michigan we bring thee these

Hearts of ours, and songs of morning

Goddess of the Inland Seas.

--Chas. M. Gayley.
