A sonnet in which a band of poets invoke the Muse for inspiration to honor God the Poet.
Our pages' dearth decrees our prayers for death
    when, from time to time, we invoke the Muse
    and she doth not reply (but must refuse!)
as our quills run dry while we fail for breath
and poverty. We pray the gods from beneath 
    Parnassus that we never waste or lose, 
    but instead acquire, their afflatus,—that ooze
and oil wherewith our lines may flow, enwreath'd
in hallowed tones and framed with solemn rhyme
    to honor and magnify the Creator,
the Maker of makers, for all of time:
    for there's no Poet more august or greater!
If the Muse but only inspires, desire 
we words wherewith we may sing as if afire!
