filled to thee, to thee I drank
Moore (1779-1852), Irish poet
filled to thee, to thee I drank,
nothing did but drink and fill;
bowl by turns was bright and blank,
drinking, filling, drinking still.
length I bade an artist paint
image in this ample cup,
I might see the dimpled saint,
whom I quaffed my nectar up.
how bright that purple lip
blushes through the wave at me;
roseate drop I sip
just like kissing wine from thee.
still I drink the more for this;
ever when the draft I drain,
lip invites another kiss,
the nectar flows again.
here's to thee, my gentle dear,
may that eyelid never shine
a darker, bitterer tear
bathes it in this bowl of mine!
