TO A LADY, WITH A PAIR OF DRINKING GLASSES, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Fair empress of the poet's soul
Last Line: Well charged with generous nappy!
Subject(s): Glasses (tumblers)


Fair Empress of the Poet's soul,
And Queen of Poetesses;
Clarinda, take this little boon,
This humble pair of glasses:

And fill them up with generous juice,
As generous as your mind;
And pledge them to the generous toast,
"The whole of human kind!"

"To those who love us!" second fill;
But not to those whom we love;
Lest we love those who love not us --
A third -- "To thee and me, Love!"

Long may we live! long may we love!
And long may we be happy!
And may we never want a glass
Well charged with generous nappy!
