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.
