Stop Button Clutter!
Fair Hope!
Abraham Cowley (1618-1667), English poet

Fair Hope! our earlier Heaven! by thee
Young Time is taster to Eternity.
The generous wine with age grows strong, not
sour,
Nor need we kill thy fruit to smell thy flower.
Thy golden head never hangs down
'Till in the lap of Love's full noon
It falls and dies: Oh no, it melts away
As doth the dawn into the day,
As lumps of sugar lose themselves, and twine
Their subtle essence with the soul of wine.


from On Hope (lines 51 – 60)
