Subject(s): Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von (1749-1832); Muses; Psyche (Mythology)

THE MUSES, maiden sisters, chose
To teach poor Psyche arts poetic;
But, spite of all their rules aesthetic,
She never could emerge from prose.

No dulcet sounds escaped her lyre,
E'en when the summer nights were nigh;
Till Cupid came, with glance of fire,
And taught her all the mystery.
