To the Muses, at the Beginning

Clear-voiced Muses, I call to you,
Upraising this hymn as this new work I commence.

O leaders to wisdom, my much-beloved patrons,
Mnemosyne’s daughers, pray attend to my words.

From the song of the stars to the stories of men
You bring virtue and skill to the sage and the bard.

Come with your grace, with many fine gifts.
Inspire my mind, blessed teachers and guides.

Give me honey-sweet words as I write in this space.
Holy guardians and patrons, please bless me and this work.
