To Dionysos at Anthesteria
Dionysos, You who are He who blesses us with wine-bearing fruit,
Who surrounds us with the ivy which grows endlessly upon walls;
You who bestows the blessiongs of merriment and the curses of madness;
I give Thee thanks for your gifts.
Remind me always to take time to relax and find pleasure
And keep me safe from the madness that you understand so well.
Blessed Dionysos, I give the thanks!
