Courting My Muse
© 2003 by Mary Crowell.
The song "Courting My Muse" wasn't actually on the CD,
"Courting My Muse." Perhaps it will appear on the next one.
There is a tale of a man who got to listen to
Songs of the sirens. He lived through the day.
And I wanna be that man.
There is a tale of a man who got to visit with his
Love down in Hades through the power of Song.
And I wanna hear that man.
I hear the magic that music imbues
In notes you sing and the rhythm you choose.
I fall in love when I’m court-ing my muse,
When you sing to me.
I am the sort who would think it worth the danger to lay
Down on the crossroads,to hear the Fairies sing,
And stay for a year and a day.
The song's the bait that is always proven Fatal, helps
Man find his mate, or leaves my mind a crazy state
And longing for the Sing of that Song.
Erato, and Urania,
And you are number ten.
