Percy Bysshe Shelley – “I Have Drunken Deep of Joy…

“…And I will taste no other wine tonight.”


Which other wine is stronger than the joy;
that comes from basking in the presence of pure love?


None! Love is like good wine, it gets better with time
the beginning is glorious but the middle is the fire,


don’t get furious and give up when it gets tough,
the best part is yet to come;


Presently, the worst would roll away,
then you would understand what Percy Bysshe Shelley meant when she said;


“The sunlight claps the earth, and the moonbeams kiss the sea: what are all these kissings worth, if thou kiss not me?”
