Greece and Turkey in Europe: Vol. XIX.  1876–79.
 
Greece: Helicon, the Mountain
Helicon
Thomas Gray (1716–1771)
 

AWAKE, Æolian lyre! awake,
And give to rapture all thy trembling strings;
From Helicon’s harmonious springs
A thousand rills their mazy progress take;
The laughing flowers, that round them blow,        5
Drink life and fragrance as they flow.
Now the rich stream of music winds along
Deep, majestic, smooth, and strong,
Through verdant vales and Ceres’ golden reign;
Now rolling down the steep amain,        10
Headlong, impetuous, see it pour;
The rocks and nodding groves rebellow to the roar.
