ZITH women and wine I defy every care,
For life without these is a bubble of air;
Let grave sober mortals my maxims condemn,
Wine, prudently us’d, will our senses improve ;
Then come, my dear charmer! thou nymph half divine!
But should't thou my pasion for wine disapprove,

To plunge old Care in floods of wine;
Not yet is hope fo wholly flown,
And see, through yonder filent grove,
The sole confufion I admire,
