Come, Send Round The Wine
Friend of my soul this goblet sip

I filled to thee, To thee I drank

Ne'er talk of Wisdom's gloomy schools

Press the grape and let it pour

Quick! We Have But A Second

Spring And Autumn

Take Hence The Bowl

The Legacy

When The Wine-Cup Is Smiling
Wreath The Bowl

Stop Button Clutter!
To James Corry, ESQ: On His Making Me A Present Of A Wine Strainer
Thomas Moore (1779-1852), Irish poet

This life, dear Corry, who can doubt –
Resembles much friend Ewart's wine,
When first the rosy drops come out,
How beautiful, how clear they shine!

And thus awhile they keep their tint,
So free from even a shade with some,
That they would smile, did you but hint,
That darker drops would ever come.

But soon the ruby tide runs short,
Each minute makes the sad truth plainer,
Till life, like old and crusty port,
When near its close, requires a strainer.

This friendship can alone confer,
Alone can teach the drops to pass,
If not as bright as once they were,
At least unclouded, thro' the glass.

Nor, Corry, could a boon be mine.
Of which this heart were fonder, vainer,
Than thus, if life grow like old wine,
To have thy friendship for its strainer.
