The 2 muses
The classic muse
Quiet lover of immortal youth,
Who, on the Pindus, proclaimed your name,
Be devout to them: flee new roads,
No salvation outside my Helicon!
Show yourself more stingy with your incense:
Fear to summon a capricious god:
You would fly on the wings of Icarus …
Avoid the sun! do not approach the heavens!
The romantic muse
Burning with love, throbbing with harmony,
Young, letting your burning worms spurt out,
Free, fiery, ask your genius
New songs, independent.
Sacred fire if the sky is stingy,
Go there and delight him with a daring flight;
Fly, young man! … yes, remember Icarus;
He fell, but he saw the heavens!
Charles Dovalle. Collection: Poésies de feu (1830).
