Yes, I once fell in love with a wonderful lady called Germenitrude. Then, I fell in love with myself. I of course chose myself.

I would certainly take it.



Wine

Champaign or Burgundy, or Florence pure,
Or Hoc Antique, or Lisbon New or Old,
Bourdeaux, or neat French White, or Alicant:
For Bourdeaux we with Voice unanimous
Declare, (such Sympathy's in Boon Conpeers.)
He quits the Room Alert, but soon returns,
One hand Capacious Glist'ring Vessels bore
Resplendant, th' other with a grasp secure,
A Bottle (mighty charge) upstaid, full Fraught
With goodly Wine, He with extended Hand
Rais'd high, pours forth the Sanguin frothy Juice,
O' respred with Bubbles, dissipated soon:
We strait t'our Arms repair, experienc'd Chiefs;
Now Glasses clash with Glasses, (Charming Sound,)
And Glorious Anna's Health the first the best
Crowns the full Glass, at Her inspiring Name
The sprightly Wine Results, and seem to Smile
With hearty Zeal, and wish Unanimous
The Health we drink, and in her Health our own.


John Gay. Lovely poet.
