POEM OF THE DAY

ODE FOR A SOCIAL MEETING

        WITH SLIGHT ALTERATIONS BY A TEETOTALER

Come! fill a fresh bumper,--for why should we go
                    logwood
While the {nectar} still reddens our cups as they flow?
                             decoction
Pour out the {rich juices} still bright with the sun,
                                                                    dye-stuff
Till o'er the brimmed crystal the {rubies} shall run.
            half-ripened apples
The {purple-globed clusters} their life-dews have bled;
                                    taste                            sugar of lead
How sweet is the {breath} of the {fragrance they shed}!
                         rank poisons                            wines!!!
For Summer's {last roses} lie hid in the {wines}
                                                 stable-boys smoking long-nines
That were garnered by {maidens who laughed through the vines},
                scowl                     howl                    scoff                    sneer
Then a {smile}, and a {glass}, and a {toast}, and a {cheer},
         strychnine and whiskey, and ratsbane and beer
For {all the good wine, and we've some of it here}!

In cellar, in pantry, in attic, in hall,
    Down, down with the tyrant that masters us all!
{Long live the gay servant that laughs for us all!}

                                                     Oliver Wendell Holmes.

[Transcriber's note: The words in {braces} are struck out in the
original text with alternatives above.]
