O Muse! Fill me with love and care
award me your insight without err
lead me to your treasures, which I humbly sought
that more songs I’d then be taught
by sheddin’ your fair voice to this feeble song.
Take me to places where prayers sleep not long
teach me how to Poetry’s garden tend
that your heart I’ll with swell words rend.
Show me your society, which is forever kind
then your tender beauty I’ll not mind.
Trust me to your dwelling place
that joy I may know and embrace.
