The Muse — Poetry

She gathers moonbeams by the sea
harnesses the energy in her hands
and tosses knowledge to mankind

She has kept the stories alive
through lyrics and songs
prophesies of old for mankind

She awakens poets at midnight
churns words into rhyme
sacred tomes shared with mankind

She is a silent whisper
a breath upon the four winds
a reminder of tomorrows for mankind

She is diviner and magician
set high upon Olympus
a channel between gods and mankind
