Great-hearted Bergusia of long-lost Alesia,
deep within the golden hills of Burgundy,
I call to you. Bergusia of the burnished blade,
lady and beloved of peerless Ucuetis
of fire and forge, keen of eye and firm of will,
you share his temples and his craft. Bergusia,
whose gift it is to bring beauty to all the works
of skillful men, whose blessings fall on the honest
and the diligent, who rewards hard work and care
with fair return and good repute, friend of the smith
and the artisan, you lend your strength and vision
to those who hold your art in hand. Goddess, I praise you!
