|A cup of opal through which there glows the cream of the pearl, the heart of the rose; And the blue of the sea Where Australia lies, and the amber flush of her sunset skies, and the emerald tints of the dragon fly shall stain my cup with their brilliant dye. And into this cup I would pour the wine of youth and health and the gifts divine of music and song, and the sweet content which must ever belong to a life well spent. And what bread would I break with my wine, think you? The bread of a love that is pure and true.
