Sonnet Lamenting My Visit with the Muses

I doubt not Thalia whispered in her ear
How void of song Euterpe viewed my craft.
So, as she danced away like never here,
Terpsichore beheld my verse and laughed.
Calliope beseeched me to constrain
My effort, lest Polymnia be too shocked.
Urania divined, but ne'er explained,
Erato mimicked not so much as mocked.
Of all the Muses, only two remain:
Just Clio, here to jog my memory
Of what I had; and giving mem'ry pain
Lamenting with me, poor Melpomene.
When I loved you, the Muses never strayed
But nevermore, once you my love betrayed.
