GMC poetry: Bes

Dancing Bes

Who delights in the loud clamor of drums

And the din of war

Leonine dwarf

Out of Nubia

Crowned with the ostrich feather

Guardian of the Horus-child

Who stands at the door

To protect those who dwell within

O Lord of Punt

Chase away the mischievous spirits of misfortune

And bring only sweet music and joy to this home

Guard my children

Bless my animals with fertility

My farm with productiveness

And protect all living creatures under my care.

If you do this, O fearsome fighter of wild beasts,

Then I will continue to offer you barley and wine.
