A Drinking Song
William Butler Yeats (1865-1939), Irish poet/dramatist

Wine comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
I look at you, and I sigh.


From Responsibilities and Other Poems by William Butler Yeats (1917)
