222. Verses to Clarinda with Drinking Glasses

 FAIR Empress of the Poet’s soul,
 And Queen of Poetesses;
Clarinda, take this little boon,
 This humble pair of glasses:


And fill them up with generous juice,
 As generous as your mind;
And pledge them to the generous toast,
 “The whole of human kind!”


“To those who love us!” second fill;
 But not to those whom we love;
Lest we love those who love not us—
 A third—“To thee and me, Love!”
