Esus

I call out to the man with the axe,
the caretake of order,
the god who cuts the wild sprouts and shapes the tree.
Esus, I ask you:
Share your courage to set boundaries with me,
your temperance to to cut too much
and the optimized poructvity and fertility that stems from your work.

I call out to the man with the far-sightedness,
a vision of future,
a hint of what can be, the seeing god.
Esus, I ask you:
Share your visions with me,
your wisdom
and the discipline and perseverance that is necessary to keep a clear mind.

I call out to the companion of the bull and the cranes,
the one, who knows about his place in the cosmic picture,
that one who stands true to his opinions.
Esus, I ask you:
Share your sense of duty and piety against the gods and humankind with me,
your integrity and not at least:
Accept my hospitality,
here, between fire, well and tree,
and the gifts I have for you!

Some see Teutates as the divine gardener. As you can see from this text that role is more like a job
for Esus in my opinion.
