Drink  to me only  with thine eyes.” Is  an old  English  song  that  has  always intrigued   me. The  lyrics  are  beautiful   and  have always  touched  my  heart.

Drink to me only with thine eyes,
         And I will pledge with mine;
Or leave a kiss but in the cup,
         And I’ll not look for wine.
The thirst that from the soul doth rise
         Doth ask a drink divine;
But might I of Jove’s nectar sup,
         I would not change for thine.
I sent thee late a rosy wreath,
         Not so much honouring thee
As giving it a hope, that there
         It could not withered be.
But thou thereon didst only breathe,
         And sent’st it back to me;
Since when it grows, and smells, I swear,
         Not of itself, but thee.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The  beauty  of  the  words  are  very  touching. Words  of  love.
Coming  back to  the  prompt, drink , and I  do like a drink  occasionally.
To  tell  the  truth  I  have  a  glass  of  wine, preferably  a  full bodied  red.
During  the  day  I  like  coffee black  coffee….. not   too keen on a drink  of tea.
That’s  not  very English  of  me is it!

    Tea and white wine for me, thanks! Lovely song! I’d never heard of that singer.

    I’m up there with you for a full-bodied red, Willow, but I’m not a coffee lover. However, I love the taste of coffee in cake or chocolate.

    Lovely song, Willow. I tend to drink red in the winter (it warms me up) and a nice chilled white in the summer. Right! Time to put a bottle in the fridge! 😀

    I can’t bear tea, either. Coffee is the only hot drink for me; the stronger and blacker the better.
