The Draught
By Charles Henry Lüders (1858–1891)
 
WHEN I am thirsty, let me drink
Prone upon the mossy brink
Of a rocky basin, laid
Within the forest’s heart of shade.
 
There may I know the cool caress        5
The spring gives to my eagerness;
Feeling its bubbles rise and float
Around my chin, across my throat,
Till the swiftly pulsing blood
Circles calmly as the flood;        10
Till by every sense I’m told
That never flagon tipped with gold
So divine a draught doth hold.
