An die Muse: Hymne an die Kalliope

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Greek (Ελληνικά)

O Muse, mir Vertraute du,
laß klingen meine Lieder,
mit deiner heil'gen Haine Luft
erfülle meine Sinne!

Weiseste Kalliope,
du Erste der lieblichen Musen,
Geber der Weihung auch du,
Latona's Erzeugter, o Paian,
fördert eures Sängers Lied!
