(11 September 1700 – 27 August 1748 / Ednam in Roxburghshire, Scotland)

The Wine of Love

THE wine of Love is music,
   And the feast of Love is song:
And when Love sits down to the banquet,
   Love sits long:

Sits long and arises drunken,
   But not with the feast and the wine;
He reeleth with his own heart,
   That great, rich Vine.
