Excerpt from The Tenth Muse, and Other Poems

In stately classic time
Who built the lofty rhyme -
While yet his hand wandered along the lyre,
While the loud prelude lingered,
And each quick string he fingered,
Not finding fitting outburst of his fire -
Then would he raise
First notes of prayer and praise
To those great daughters of Mnemosynë -
The high immortal Nine -
And, swift! the whispered line
Leapt to his lip, - commanding, sounding, free.
