in a glass of cider

It seemed I was a mite of sediment

That waited for the bottom to ferment

So I could catch a bubble in ascent.

I rode up on one till the bubble burst,

And when that left me to sink back reversed

I was no worse off than I was at first.

I'd catch another bubble if I waited.

The thing was to get now and then elated.

 

-- Robert Frost, 1962
