To Thomas Moore

Written by: George (Lord) Byron | Biography
 | Quotes (166) |
 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!

Here's a sigh to those who love me,
And a smile to those who hate;
And, whatever sky's above me,
Here's a heart for every fate.
Though the ocean roar around me, Yet it still shall bear me on; Though a desert should surround me, It hath springs that may be won.
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.
With that water, as this wine, The libation I would pour Should be—peace with thine and mine, And a health to thee, Tom Moore!
