Wreath the Bowl is a beautiful song written by that beloved Irish poet and composer, Thomas Moore (1779-1852). Its elegant three verses poetically extol the delights of the cup in a most gentlemanly manner. The last line of the chorus, "We'll take a flight towards heaven to-night, and leave dull earth behind us", expresses eloquently the songs sentiments.
