  • Never the Muse is absent
    from their ways: lyres clash and flutes cry
    and everywhere maiden choruses whirling.
    Neither disease nor bitter old age is mixed
    in their sacred blood; far from labor and battle they live.

    Never on land or by sea will you find
    the marvelous road to the feast of the Hyperborea.
