Johann Wolfgang von Goethe - A PLAN THE MUSES ENTERTAINED.

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.
