divine intervention

Calliope bestows a lifeline
not one but 26
powers that hide her from Charon
on the banks of the River Styx

the muses stone the black dog
chase the demons from her head
she does not lack for love
as Eros now dwells in her bed

the spirits Lêthê & Hypnos
guard eyes that would weep
they bring water from a river
to ensure her restful sleep

the ruler of the universe
remains watchful on his throne
thus all Olympus rises
to protect one of its own
