The Nine Muses

Erato is the Muse of romantic poems and love
Searching for the light from up above.
Euterpe is the Muse of, well, music
Wanting to light in each mind a little wick.
Polyhymnia is the Muse of the arts of religions
Stories and poems, as well as songs.
Terpsichore is the Muse of dance, and as you can guess,
There is no way she will like it less and less.
Calliope is the Muse of epics and eloquence
Dreaming of faraway lands and adventures hence.
Thalia is the Muse of comedy and likes to laugh
Though drawn to the shepherd and his staff.
Clio is the Muse of history and the recorder of events
As well as architecture and everything since.
Melpomene is the Muse of tragedy, and as such,
All will know that she understands them very much.
Urania is the Muse of astronomy and picturesque arts
And is in charge of the other sciences, and such sorts.
