Stop Button Clutter!
God Lyaeus ever young
John Fletcher (1579-1625), English playwright/poet

God Lyaeus ever young,
Ever honored, ever sung,
Stained with blood of lusty grapes,
In a thousand lusty shapes,
Dance upon the mazer’s brim,
In the crimson liquor swim;
From thy plenteous hand divine,
Let a river run with wine:
God of youth, let this day here
Enter neither care nor fear.


from The Oxford Book of English Verse (c. 1900)
