To Apollon, Asklepios, and the Daughters of Epione
For the inspiration granted to the biochemists all,
For the dedication shown by the students of this art,
For the gifts of pharmaceuticals—wondrous every one—
And for the healthy minds and bodies, healthy souls and healthy hearts
That these medications bring to those who gather in Your halls,
We praise You, bright Apollon, Your granddaughters, and Your son.
