The Green Muse

Greetings, magic essence
Greetings, the Verb of liqueurs !

Spirit of the mystic torch

Steel hardener for the hearts
Grass of the flesh! Right of the soul

Your nourishing stream flows
You, are you not the flame

When wine is only the blood ?

O. Fere and J. Cuvain "Absinthe song", tr. P. Schaf
