Why do I seek you? c


You are the moon; you are the breeze;
You are the dews. Things cool are you.
You are the star; you are the rays;
You are the spark; things bright are you.
You are the fruit; you're the honey;
You are the lips; things sweet are you.
Hot, dark and bitter as I am,
I seek you, the cool, bright and sweet.

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;

Before we grow old and die.
