Argument and Invocation:

For you I write (oh let my pen not fail)
A song of stars, and those who 'tween them sail;
Of creatures brave, and braver deeds to do
My dearest one, I scribe these tales for you.
My work is vast, my mind and heart would quail
And Muses three must aid me with this tale:
For stars and worlds Urania I call;
Euterpe bless my stellar singers all;
But more than these and most out of the three,
I wait upon your aid, Calliope.
Galactic fate must be decided, hence
'Tis time this Grand Scheme epic should commence.
