An ode praising the nymph, a mythological spirit of nature imagined as a beautiful maiden.


Ode To A Nymph

SHE beams with joy, like one in love
with love itself and all thatís lush;
and when the mythic gods above
unloose her from the morning's blush,
she alights like the milk-white dove
with the notes of a warbling thrush.

With gilded locks, like flax most fair,
and liquid, limpid eyes of blue,
none is like her or can compare
to her likeness and blazing hue
which give warmth to the fay who dare
beseech her for her balmy brew.

Thus foreordained as Nymph and muse
to be revered as though a saint
which no man can therefore refuse
or with vile words destroy or taint,
so let all Creatures freely choose
to worship her without constraint.
