Able to bear the poignant sweetness, take
The rich long awful measure of its peace,
Endure the presence sublime.

While round about it flower-seeds
In will of youth shall grow to deeds!

Then is the heart made readable--

Words that are truer than truth has said;
Measures of love, the spirit's song,
Writ of your soul to haunt me long.
"One Day And Another: A Lyrical Eclogue – Part II" by Madison Julius Cawein

With empty platter, empty cup,
No meats nor sweets to do me pleasure,
That if I crave—is it over-eager,
The deepest draught, the fullest measure,
The beaker to the brim poured up?
