The Poet and the Muse Lyrics 2 is one of the Collectibles found in Alan Wake. It is one of the pages of the Departure manuscript. It can only be obtained in Nightmare Mode.

Manuscript text[]

The Poet and the Muse lyrics by Old Gods of Asgard.

The second verse:

The poet came down to the lake to call out to his dear

When there was no answer he was overcome with fear

He searched in vain for his treasure lost and too soon the night would fall

Only his own echo would wail back at his call

And when he swore to bring back his love by stories he'd create

Nightmares shifted in their sleep in the darkness of the lake.


The page can be found on a shelf in the garage barn's upper floor, after the confrontation with the possessed monster truck.
