The Rhapsode

(1980)

In "The Rhapsode," Frank Lewin sets a text of Ogden Nash, the fifth and final song in his song cycle A Musical Nashery.

The Rhapsode
by Ogden Nash


The rhapsode strives to win his wreath
With smiles, perhaps, or gnashing teeth;
He sings of man and distant Zeus,
And always minds to praise the Muse.
