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.

--Edgar Allan Poe

(Though to have been written at Washington Tavern in Lowell, Massachusetts, where it hung on the saloon wall until about 1920)
