Wine, Woman, and Sigh

William Butler Yeats (Image: mypoeticside.com)

Wine comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye:
That’s all we know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
I look at you, and I sigh
.

~ Wiliam Butler Yeats (1865 –1939)
Irish poet

(from A Drinking Song)
