A PLAN THE MUSES ENTERTAINED.

Written by: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe | Biography
 | Quotes (340) |
 A PLAN the Muses entertain'd

Methodically to impart

To Psyche the poetic art;
Prosaic-pure her soul remain'd.
No wondrous sounds escaped her lyre

E'en in the fairest Summer night;
But Amor came with glance of fire,--

The lesson soon was learn'd aright.

 1827.*
