With the soft rush of golden wings
She comes. . .
Fluttering, glimmering, shining
Messenger–
Iris, Handmaid of Hera. 
From salty deep to cloud-shrouded height
You travel the Rainbow Road
Relaying tidings throughout the realms.
Great goddess Iris, visit us here, accept this offering,
And help us to be heard across the worlds.
Iris, Wondrous One—Hail!
