Quotes edit

  • Sparkling and bright in liquid light
    Does the wine our goblets gleam in;
    With hue as red as the rosy bed
    Which a bee would choose to dream in.
    Then fill to-night, with hearts as light
    To loves as gay and fleeting
    As bubbles that swim on the beaker’s brim
    And break on the lips while meeting.
    • Sparkling and Bright (published 1840).
