A Lover like the Muse

And do they then desire

A lover like the Muse--

Who visits unexpectedly

Dispensing her epiphany

On those that cannot

Think or see, or hear or feel,

Or write a word,

After she has gone

To sprinkle onto other men

That selfsame blinding fickle light, and curse,

Identical in passion and in kind.
