Lyrics adapted from Virgil's Georgics poem written in 29 BC.
Ye sacred Muses! With whose beauty fired
My soul is ravished and my brain inspired
Whose priest I am, whose holy robes I wear,
Would you your poet’s first petition hear?
Give me the ways
Of wandering stars to know
Why flowing tides prevail upon the main?
And in what dark recess they shrink again?
What shakes the solid earth? What force delays,
The summer nights and shortens winter days?
But, if my heavy blood restrain the flight
Of my free soul aspiring to the height
Of nature and unclouded fields of light
My next desire is
Void of care and strife
To lead a soft, secure, inglorious life
A country cottage near a crystal flood
A winding valley, and a lofty wood
Some god conduct me to the sacred shades
Where bacchanals are sung by Spartan maids
Happy the ones who, studying nature’s laws
Through known effects can trace the sacred cause
Their mind possessing in a quiet state
Fearless of fortune and resigned to fate
