Lines On Ale by Edgar Allen Poe

August 4.

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)
