Text: rejected, “[Lines on Ale],” formerly attributed to Poe, as written about July 10, 1848


[[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.
