The Sky Is a Drinking-Cup
By Richard Henry Stoddard (1825–1903)
 
[From Poems. Complete Edition. 1880.]

THE SKY is a drinking-cup,
  That was overturned of old,
And it pours in the eyes of men
  Its wine of airy gold.
 
We drink that wine all day,        5
  Till the last drop is drained up,
And are lighted off to bed
  By the jewels in the cup!
