APOLLO

    Which of the fairest three
    Today will ride with me?
My steeds are all pawing on the thresholds of Morn:
    Which of the fairest three
    Today will ride with me?
Across the gold Autumn's whole kingdoms of corn?


THE GRACES all answer

    I will, I - I - I -
    O young Apollo let me fly along with thee,
    I will, I - I - I -
      The many, many wonders see -
    I - I - I - I -
And thy lyre shall never have a slackened string.
      I - I - I - I -
Thro' the whole day will sing.
