''I Long for Thy Truant Inspiration''I long for thy truant inspiration,
O Muse, for I've felt thy absence too long!
Empower me to sing a new, gay song:
that with pen I still may bring creation.
Reappear, Muse, to my great elation!
For thou canst never do me ill or wrong.
Arrive! So that my distress shan't prolong;
nor shalt persist the source of my frustration.
For thy return shalt cripple disrepair
of my Parnassus: and shalt have its sway;
and the cease of my creative despair
shalt dawn on this—this!—most auspicious day
(like spring that reawakens life everywhere),
when comes alive this sonnet through this way.
