The poem reminds me, from afar, of a poem written by Paul Celan and
published in his collection 'Mohn und Gedchtnis' (1953): "An den langen
Tischen der Zeit / zechen die Krge Gottes.... Sie trinken, was einer
gebraut / der nicht ich war, noch du, noch ein dritter / Sie trinken eine
Leeres und Letztes."

The mood from this peom created the speaker's grievence of human life.
Happiness can never last long, it can be distracted by human nature." when
'landlords' turn the drunken Bee Out of the Foxglove's door."

Only Heaven proves to be the best place to live. the saint feels the
sympathy for the "tippler" or the drinker.
