Monday Musing: St. Patrick's Day

1907 Portrait of William Butler Yeats, by John Butler Yeats

A Drinking Song
          by William Butler Yeats
Wine comes in at the mouth  
And love comes in at the eye;  
That’s all we shall know for truth  
Before we grow old and die.  
I lift the glass to my mouth,
I look at you, and I sigh.
