TESTO DEL LIED"Muse of the golden throne"
di Helen Maude Francesca Bantock (von Schweizer) (1868-?)
Muse of the golden throne, O raise that strain,
Which once thou used to sweetly sing:
Come, Cyprian Goddess, and in cups of gold
Pour forth thy nectar of delight,
Thou and thy servant, Love!
Come, rosy-armed, pure Graces,
sweet-voiced maidens, come
With winged feet, dance round the altar fair,
Trampling the fine soft bloom of the grass.
Hither now, Muses, hither, come!
