Sing to me O muse of the divine Circe.

Sorceress among the ranks of the immortals.

Goddess among women and Woman among goddesses.

Circe in exile, daughter of the East.

On the island of Eea,

Where the Sun god has no certain horizon.

Tell me of her strength, of her epic.

How she harnessed the father who is everywhere.

Tell me, muse,

Of when he helped Odysseus,

welcomed Medea and Jason.

If you ever tell her story, poets and poetesses,

tell of Circe as of a unique, untamed, free woman.

Who kills to defend,

deceives to protect but seduces for love.

Say of the fearless sorceress,

righteous, in marriage with Nature.

If you ever tell her story,

tell of her passion,

of her spells,

of her sensuality.

But do not tell of another hero.

Do not be fanatical about a myth character.

Circe is today, among you.

Among rebellious women and men, in the constituted society.

Circe is the dignity of that Woman

Who does not bend to compromise.

Of those who, stuck in the mud of the world,

manages to rise with Aeolus;

to sail on the Zephyr of the world,

as if it were always Spring.

Oh you who read, you are Circe....

Oh you who listen with your gaze: be Circe!
