Alternate Author Name(s): Smith, Horatio
Subject(s): Jonson, Ben (1572-1637); Poetry & Poets


Wink at it only with thine eyes,
Nor taste it while we dine;
Or pour the liquor in my cup,
But do not call it wine.
The thirst that from the Courts doth rise
Doth ask a drink divine;
But might I of ditch water sup
I would not change for thine.

I sent thee late three guineas, net,
Not so much trusting thee,
As hoping that in small sound beer
It might expended be;
But thou therewith didst only get
An odd job lot for me;
Since when I daily growl and swear
Both at thy wine and thee.
