O’ my sullen muse!,
Just for one dreadful night,
Can you be loyal with me?
Be not harsh,
And pour me the drops of benevolence,
For one last time;
And let me indite the-
Horatian Ode of the Epoch,
For my beloved-
Digging pits in my heart,
With the sharp dagger of apathy;
Before I sacrifice my soul
At the mystic altar of humanity,
In the garden of Demeter!
