Excerpts from the poem “Absinthe” by Daniel Fallstrom

Today, may we present quotes from the poem “Absinthe,” written by Daniel Fallstrom circa 1903!

 “Absinthe! …I thought, here is cure to be found”

“The green witch’s caress was so soft, / that heart tired of life forgot its troubles.”

“Absinthe is good: you feel it in marrow and bone / and it livens more than all the doctor’s pills.”
