Under starred swathe of Urania’s heavens
sacred songs of Polyhmnia voice praise.
Calliope scribes epic poems to inspire
& Erato draws lovers close with her
fresh lines as Clio retells our fables.
Dance to Euterpe’s music! Wipe
Melpomene’s face, Terpsichore.
Laugh with Talia, no more
woes! Praise these NINE,
our revered MUSES!
