1   DASH to the floor that bowl! Dare not its sweets to sip! There's peril to the soul,
If once it touch the lip, Why will ye drown The God within ? Avoid the sin! Ay, dash it down !
2  And let no fire be brought,
In goblet, glass, or bowl, Within the " dome of thought The palace of the soul;" Lest in that fire Of burning drink, That palace sink, That soul expire.
3  Let light on water shine—
The light of love and truth! Then shall that drink divine Be quaffed by age and youth ; And as that bow,
Doth heavenward bend, Shall heavenward tend The way they go.
82                          C. M.
1   STAY, mortal, stay ! nor heedless thus Thy sure destruction seal:
Within that cup there lurks a curse, Which all who drink must feel.
2  Disease and death, for ever nigh,
Stand ready at the door, And eager wait to hear the cry, Of, " Give me one glass more."
