Stop Button Clutter!
At The Tavern
Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872-1906), American poet


A lilt and a swing,
And a ditty to sing,
Or ever the night grow old;
The wine is within,
And I'm sure 't were a sin
For a soldier to choose to be cold, my dear,
For a soldier to choose to be cold.

We ‘re right for a spell,
But the fever is – well,
No thing to be braved, at least;
So bring me the wine;
No low fever in mine,
For a drink is more kind than a priest, my dear,
For a drink is more kind than a priest.



from The Complete Poems Of Paul Laurence Dunbar (1922)
