Odes Of Anacreon: Mix me, child, a cup divine...
Mix me, child, a cup divine...
by Thomas Moore
Mix me, child, a cup divine,
Crystal water, ruby wine;
Weave the frontlet, richly flushing,
O'er my wintry temples blushing.
Mix the brimmer--Love and I
Shall no more the gauntlet try.
Here -- upon this holy bowl,
I surrender all my soul!
