A PLAN THE MUSES ENTERTAINED

A PLAN THE MUSES ENTERTAINED

A PLAN the Muses entertain’d

Methodically to impart

To Psyche the poetic art;
Prosaic-pure her soul remain’d.
No wondrous sounds escaped her lyre

E’en in the fairest Summer night;
But Amor came with glance of fire,

The lesson soon was learn’d aright.

1827.*
