POURED by a hundred rills,
The blue cup of the hills
Is lifted into light,
Through birches pale of limb
That lean to its granite rim
And are mirrored green and white.

This is the cup of storm;
No sun can make it warm
That passes overhead;
And here in channeled stone,
Cold and quenched and alone,
A fallen star lies dead.

Drink at the deep cup
That the hills have lifted up
And it will make you old;
For you taste the long-drowned sky,
And the glow of suns gone by,
In this water, clear and cold.
