A poem praising the Muse, a mythological spirit of nature imagined as a beautiful maiden.
SHE beams with joy, like one in love
    with love itself and all that’s lush;
and when the Grecian gods above
    unloose her from the morning's blush,
she descends like the gentle dove
    with the notes of a crooning thrush.

With gilded locks, like flax most fair,
    and liquid, limpid eyes so blue,
none is like her or can compare
    to her likeness and brilliant hue;
which give light to the bold who dare
    beseech her for her god-like view.

Thus foreordained as mythic Muse
    to be revered as though a saint,
which no man can therefore refuse
    or with vile words destroy or taint;
so let all creatures freely choose
    to worship her without constraint.
