The purpose of this ode is to sing the praises of my Muse.
For You my love's unwavering
    and ample to inspire;
its passion for You burns red-hot
    like a blazing bonfire.

All the year long my thoughts o'er You
    captivate and free me;
they form wing-like to my caged mind
    which You give liberty.

Like the vast, bottomless oceans
    my warmth for You runs deep;
in its depths is my great ardor
    that makes great Neptune weep.

Like Helen of Troy Your fair face
    surely can launch a fleet
of a thousand ships brimming with
    Greeks who'd war by Your feet.

Even Homer's rich, epic verse
    cannot do You justice;
his oft-sung poetry pales near
    You, my dark-haired goddess.

Were You deity of Greek myth 
    You'd be Aphrodite,
a numen of unsurpassed grace
    and of such great beauty;

or Athena, goddess of wisdom,
    justice, the arts and war.
As deity of lore and truth
    You'd shut ignorance's door.

On life's tempestuous seas You'd
    foreshadow bright omens
as harbinger of good fortunes
    and patron of captains.

Your rare spirit so enrapts me
    and carries me along
that the joy of Your company
    compels me to new song.

I wish at last to pen, Beloved,
    that what I have begun
with this poem won't be finished 'til 
    we're together as one!
