Come Drink With Me


Come drink with me
on this lonely night
you who are weary
of life's misery.

Come and hear my story
on this lonely night
you I know
who also have a story to tell.

Can't you see?
the moon is guilty to see us both
drinking together
in the middle of life's misery.

Oh, the moon
though sometimes gives us hope
he too may be weary
witnessing life's misery.

Come drink with me
on this lonely night
you who are gazing
to the lonely moon.

Come drink with me all not long
and in the morning ask the rising sun
what present she has
to offer us.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
