M is for……

………Muse.

The Muses are the Goddesses who inspire us in our creativity.  They are the daughters – there are 9 of them – of Zeus and Mnemosyne.  The 9 Muses are:

Calliope – muse of epic poetry.
Clio       – muse of history.
Erato    – muse of love poetry.
Euterpe – muse of song and Elegiac poetry.
Melpomene – muse of tragedy.
Polyhymnia  – muse of hymns.
Terpsichore – muse of dance.
Thalia        – muse of comedy.
Urania    – muse of astronomy.

When we are wanting to create a fantastic piece of writing, or other creative piece, we should call upon the relevant muse to help us in our endeavour.
