Calliope, the Muse in Greek mythology who presides over eloquence and epic poetry.
My muse sighs and leaves me unwell
    and cuckolds me like faithless love
as if she's ne'er my god or belle,
afflatus or creative breath
    who came from the summits above
to save me from poetic death!
"Why go, O Calliope!?" I yell;

her leaving brings about such woe
and inexpressible sorrow
    that's too profound, too deep to tell:
I pray to Zeus I'll never know
    this Melancholia of hell!
My muse sighs and takes leave of me,—
I yell, "Why go, O Calliope!?
