The day that is celebrated around the world as International Beer Day!! When the weather is probably either hot or frazzling. Perfect weather for a long drink. So, in honor here is a charming little poem by Edgar Allen Poe, the master of horror.
Lines on Ale
Fill with mingled cream and amber,
I will drain that glass again.
Such hilarious visions clamber
Through the chamber of my brain.
Quaintest thoughts, queerest fancies
Come to life and fade away.
What care I how time advances;
I am drinking ale today.
1848 ~ Edgar Allen Poe (1809-1849)
