Subject(s): Athens, Greece

NYMPHS of the rain,
Let us visit again
The city by Pallas beloved, the home, --
The populous home of choicest delights,
Where for the appointed secret rites
From year to year the mystic dome
Duly unfolds its hallowed portals;
And gifts are there to the Powers Divine,
And many a statue and lofty shrine,
And pomps for all the blessed immortals;
Banquet and wreathy sacrifice
Hallow each season as it flies;
And ever, at the voice of spring,
Bacchus his graceful mirth renews;
Sweet choirs in strife melodions sing,
And all the festive echoes ring
With thunders of the Scenic Muse.
