Odes Of Anacreon: Rich in bliss, I proudly scorn...
Rich in bliss, I proudly scorn...
by Thomas Moore
Rich in bliss, I proudly scorn,
The stream of Amalthea's horn!
Nor should I ask to call the throne
Of the Tartessian prince my own;
To totter through his train of years,
The victim of declining fears.
One little hour of joy to me
Is worth a dull eternity!
