Orphic Hymn 77 to Mnemosyne (trans. Taylor) (Greek hymns C3rd B.C. to 2nd A.D.) :
To Mnemosyne (Memory), Fumigation from Frankincense.
“The consort I invoke of Zeus divine;
source of the holy, sweetly speaking Mousai nine;
free from the oblivion of the fallen mind, by whom the soul with intellect is joined.
Reason’s increase and thought to thee belong, all-powerful, pleasant, vigilant, and strong.
‘Tis thine to waken from lethargic rest all thoughts deposited within the breast;
and nought neglecting, vigorous to excite the mental eye from dark oblivion’s night.
Come, blessed power, thy mystics’ memory wake to holy rites, and Lethe’s (Forgetfulness) fetters break.”
