Syriac Ephrem

Make me formal,

    Syriac Ephrem,
        or keep me light,

nearly normal,

        barely bold,

    free of boast

and captious carp;

I ask you, harp

    of the Holy Ghost,


    Syriac Ephrem,

        saint of old,

        help me write.

Reminds me of Dante's Invocations to the Muses & God! I like your work.
