Thomas Moore ( )

From The Odes of Anacreon. Ode 6

As late I sought the spangled bowers
To cull a wreath of matin flowers,
Where many an early rose was weeping,
I found the urchin Cupid sleeping.
I caught the boy, a goblets tide
Was richly mantling by my side,
I caught him by his downy wing,
And whelmd him in the racy spring.
Then drank I down the poisond bowl,
And Love now nestles in my soul.
O yes, my soul is Cupids nest,
I feel him fluttering in my breast.
