Love delights the giddy lad,
Prudent age to claret flies;
For to love is to be mad,
But to drink is to be wise.
With Copernican myst'ries have done;
Let the earth turn around or the sun:
Such arguments always decline.
What needs such elaborate pother,
Since the turning of one or the other
Will ripen the juice of the vine?
