UNSOBER BY NATURE


THE EARTH SOAKS UP THE RAIN
AND DRINKS AND GAPES FOR DRINK AGAIN
THE PLANTS SUCK IN THE EARTH AND ARE
WITH CONSTANT DRINKING FRESH AND FAIR.
THE SEA ITSELF,WHICH ONE WOULD THINK
SHOULD HAVE BUT LITTLE NEED OF DRINK
TWICE 10,000 RIVERS UP,
SO FILLED THAT THEY OVERFLOW THE CUP.
THE BUSY SUN(AND ONE WOULD GUESS BY ITS FIERY FACE NO LESS)
DRINKS UP THE SEA AND WHEN HE IS DONE,
THE MOON AND STARTS DRINK UP THE SUN.
THEY DRINK AND DANCE BY THEIR OWN LIGHT;
THEY DRINK AND REVEL ALL NIGHT.
NOTHING IN NATURE IS SOBER FOUND,
BUT AN ETERNAL HEALTH GOES ROUND.
FILL UP THE BOW THEN,FILL IT HIGH,
FILL ALL THE GLASSES THERE,FOR WHY
SHOULD EVERY CREATURE DRINK BUT I
WHY MAN OF MORALS TELL ME ,WHY.
