Fair Empress of the Poet's soul,
And Queen of Poetesses;
Clarinda, take this little boon,
This humble pair of glasses.

And fill them high with generous juice,
As generous as your mind;
And pledge me in the generous toast,
"The whole of human kind!"

"To those who love us!" second fill;
But not to those whom we love;
Lest we love those who love not us!
A third, "to thee and me, love!"
