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.
