If heaven loved not the wine A Wine Star wou

If heaven loved not the wine
A Wine Star would not be in heaven
If earth loved not the wine
The Wine Spring would not be on the earth.
Since heaven and earth love the wine
Need a tippling mortal be ashamed?
The transparent wine I hear
Has the soothing virtue of a sage
While the turgid is rich they say
As the fertile mind of the wise.
Both the sage and the wise were drinkers
Why seek for peers among gods and goblins?
Three cups open the grand door to bliss
Take a jugful the universe is yours.
Such is the rapture of the wine
That the sober shall never inherit..
