Why does my Muse only speak when she is unhappy?
She does not, I only listen when I am unhappy
I am tired of loving a foreign muse.
She went in there to muse on being rid
Of relative beneath the coffin lid.
So cheat your landlord if you can and must, but do not try to shortchange the Muse. It cannot be done. You can't fake quality any ...
I press not to the quire, nor dare I greet
The holy place with my unhallowed feet;
The muse is blind as Cupid and skittish as Diana.
Rhyme and meter force gaps in meaning so the muse can enter.
Thy spotless Muse, like Mary, did contain
The boundless Godhead; she did well disdain
Hear, then, a mortal Muse thy praise rehearse,
In no ignoble verse;
The richest of all lords is Use,
And ruddy Health the loftiest Muse.
