Friend of my soul this goblet sip

Press the grape and let it pour

Through his first published work,  Odes of Anacreon
 , Thomas Moore  makes more contributions to

Stop Button Clutter!
I filled to thee, to thee I drank
(an Anacreontic)
Thomas Moore (1779-1852), Irish poet

I filled to thee, to thee I drank,
I nothing did but drink and fill;
The bowl by turns was bright and blank,
'Twas drinking, filling, drinking still.

At length I bade an artist paint
Thy image in this ample cup,
That I might see the dimpled saint,
To whom I quaffed my nectar up.

Behold, how bright that purple lip
Now blushes through the wave at me;
Every roseate drop I sip
Is just like kissing wine from thee.

And still I drink the more for this;
For, ever when the draft I drain,
Thy lip invites another kiss,
And--in the nectar flows again.

So, here's to thee, my gentle dear,
And may that eyelid never shine
Beneath a darker, bitterer tear
Than bathes it in this bowl of mine!
