First Line: I thank thee, earth, for water good
Last Line: With lydia or with lalage.
Subject(s): Holidays; Thanksgiving

I thank thee, Earth, for water good,
The sea's great bath of buoyant green
Or the cold mountain torrent's flood,
That I may keep this body clean.

I thank thee more for goodly wine,
That wise as Omar I may be,
Or Horace when he went to dine
With Lydia or with Lalage.
