To My Lyre
By Joseph Massel
WONDERFUL is my love
The love that my songs ye inspire;
My spirit, my flame and my fire,
My trophies, my treasures of old.
My temples, my silver, my gold,        5
My garden of flowers, my dove,
My comfort, my balm and my lyre
The hopes my years are in ye
More sweet than the world above
  And the sweets of the world to be.        10
