FAIRY WINE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: You from east and I from west
Last Line: We sipped together at the feast!
Subject(s): Drinks & Drinking; Fairies; Wine; Elves

YOU from east and I from west
Both stumbled into Fairyland;
And there we wandered, blithe and blest,
Through elfin mazes, hand in hand.

They poured a cup of magic brew
And laid enchantment on our eyes;
I thought I read the heart of you,
You saw me in a fairy guise.

Out of the wonder-hill we came;
We blinked and stammered, wild and wan.
For you and I were just the same,
But lo! the witchery was gone!

So, go your way and I'll go mine,
You to the west, I to the east.
But ah, how sweet the fairy wine
We sipped together at the feast!
