To the Water-Nymphs... (drinking at the fountain)

Reach with your whiter hands to me
Some crystal of the spring;
And I about the cup shall see
Fresh lilies flourishing.

Or else, sweet nymphs, do you but this--
To th' glass your lips incline;
And I shall see by that one kiss
The water turn'd to wine.

Robert Herrick (baptized August 24, 1591 – October, 1674)

Premiere: 1973 Sarah Lawrence College
