Enheduanna’s Devotional


I am yours! It will always be so!
May your heart cool off for me
May your understanding… compassion…
I have experienced your great punishment

My Lady, I will proclaim your greatness in all lands and your glory!
Your ‘way’ and great deeds I will always praise!

Enheduanna, a devotional poem (ca. 2300 BCE) in: Janet Roberts, ‘Enheduanna, Daughter of King Sargon, Princess, Poet, Priestess,’ Transoxiana 8 (2004)
