I have sipped from this cup many times, on a thousand dream filled nights, and will say that I was drunk upon it. Though the chalice be of beaten gold and brightly jewel encrusted, it is as nothing to the ruby treasure within. This wine, so long forbidden and withheld, shall be red upon my lips. I shall drink my fill and savour each drop, honeysuckle sweet, as if it were the last; for it is the last wine that I shall ever know or that I could wish to; none other could sustain me, nor bring me such release.
