The Confused Muse Refused

The Muse? Amused. She mused,

Warrior-Poet thoughts.

Kalliope, confused,

A Gift? Trap. To be fought?

“Perhaps, a passing thing?”

Sister Muses did chide,

“Oh! What gifts did He bring?”

Creamed Tea, Biscuits, Surprise.

Loving barbs, Sisters used,

At Home, Mount Olympus,

The Confused Muse refused,

Outright surrender, thus.

Sudden understanding!

This? An End to the Search?

Amazement. These things!

The Dancers’ call, She heard.
