Text heard on Sample:
Hence Burgundy, Claret, and Port,
Away with old Hock and Madeira,
Too earthly yet are for my sport;
There’s a beverage brighter and clearer.
O, my bowl in the sky,
And I drink at my eye,
Till I feel in the brain
A Delphian pain –
Then follow, my Caius! then follow!

John Keats
