Inebriate of air am I,
  And debauchee of dew,
    Reeling, through endless summer days,
      From inns of molten blue.
      - Poems (XX) [Drinking]

Belshazzar had a letter,--
  He never had but one;
    Belshazzar's correspondence
      Concluded and begun
        In that immortal copy
          The conscience of us all
            Can read without its glasses
              On revelation's wall.
      - Poems (XXV, Belshazzar had a Letter),
        (ed. 1891) [Post]

Faith is a fine invention
  For gentlemen who see;
    But Microscopes are prudent
      In an emergency.
      - Poems--Second Series (XXX) [Faith]

Not one of all the purple host
  Who took the flag to-day
    Can tell the definition
      So clear of victory,
        As he, defeated, dying,
          On whose forbidden ear
            The distant strains of triumph
              Break agonized and clear.
      - Poems--Success [Victory]

His labor is a chant,
  His idleness a tune;
    Oh, for a bee's experience
      Of clovers and of noon!
      - Poems--The Bee (XV) [Bees]

Success is counted sweetest
  By those who ne'er succeed.
      - Success, (ed. 1891) [Success]

Wild nights! Wild nights!
  Were I with thee,
    Wild nights should be
      Our luxury!
      - Wild Nights [Love]
