        Drink to me only with thine eyes,
And I will pledge with mine.
Ben Jonson.    
  2
        And he that will this health deny,
Down among the dead men let him lie.
Dyer.    
  3
        To the old, long life and treasure;
To the young, all health and pleasure.
Ben Jonson.

        The cannons to the heavens, the heavens to earth,
“Now the king drinks to Hamlet.”
Shakespeare.

        Here’s a health to the lass with the merry black eyes!
Here’s a health to the lad with the blue ones!

        First pledge our Queen this solemn night,
  Then drink to England, every guest;
That man’s the best Cosmopolite
  Who loves his native country best.

        My boat is on the shore,
  And my bark is on the sea:
But, before I go, Tom Moore,
  Here’s a double health to thee!

        Were ’t the last drop in the well,
  As I gasp’d upon the brink,
Ere my fainting spirit fell,
  ’Tis to thee that I would drink.
Byron.
