Excerpt from The Masque of the Muses

The Masque of the Muses.

Spoken By

Emma Stockman Norton

The world is topped with temples: 'neath their domes
Ideas build and fashion peoples homes,
Their social fabric, habits, customs, speech,
And all that living learns and art may teach.

A temple of the Muses here behold
(The guardian vestals of the arts of old),
Endowed with treasures costlier than the gems
That blaze in crumbling, brow-worn diadems:
The stored rewards of thought, and toil, and strife
To make the best and most of human life -
The gold of genius and the pearls of worth,
That sum the total riches of the earth.
