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.

Lines on Ale,” one of many poems by Edgar Allan Poe, was first published in 1848.
