Lines Inscribed Upon A Cup Formed From A Skull Analysis



Author: poem of Lord Byron Type: poem Views: 14

Start not—nor deem my spirit fled:

In me behold the only skull

From which, unlike a living head,

Whatever flows is never dull.



I lived, I loved, I quaffed like thee;

I died: let earth my bones resign:

Fill up—thou canst not injure me;

The worm hath fouler lips than thine.



Better to hold the sparkling grape

Than nurse the earthworm's slimy brood,

And circle in the goblet's shape

The drink of gods than reptile's food.



Where once my wit, perchance, hath shone,

In aid of others' let me shine;

And when, alas! our brains are gone,

What nobler substitute than wine?



Quaff while thou canst; another race,

When thou and thine like me are sped,

May rescue thee from earth's embrace,

And rhyme and revel with the dead.



Why not—since through life's little day

Our heads such sad effects produce?

Redeemed from worms and wasting clay,

This chance is theirs to be of use.

.: :.

The poet thinks that life\'s not worth, thinks it\'s too short, he just wants to escape, if not dieing, at least drinking and losing himself in the unconsciousness that the wine gives him.

.: :.

Lord byron had a wine glass made out of a skull. He felt it was better to use skulls as wine glasses rather than let them rot in the earth.
