Like a tulip in the spring uplift your cup
If you have (a duty to perform) with a moon-faced one
Drink wine with cheerfulness for this worn-out sky
Will suddenly invert you to the level of the earth.

 

F4 40

As then the Tulip for her morning sup
Of Heav'nly Vintage from the soil looks up,
Do you devoutly do the like, till Heav'n
To Earth invert you--like an empty Cup.

HA 40

Like a tulip in the spring uplift your cup;
If you get a (happy) opportunity with a moon-faced one,
Drink wine with cheerfulness, for this worn-out sky
Will suddenly invert you to the level of the earth.

Nic 40

Imite la tulipe qui fleurit au noorouz; prends comme elle une
coupe dans ta main, et, si l'occasion se présente, bois, bois du vin avec bonheur, en compagnie d'une jeune beauté aux joues colorées du teint de cette fleur, car cette roue bleue, comme un coup de vent, peut tout à coup venir te renverser.

P 135

Take the cup in thy hand, as the tulip in May;
With a tulip-cheeked fair, if time serve thee, be gay:
Drink wine and rejoice in the sweet of the day
For Old Time will ere long lay thee low in the clay.

Th 83

As tulip in the Spring her cup lifts, so
With tulip-cheeked fair, if chance serve, do you.
And drink in gladness ere yon azure sphere
Like whirlwind suddenly doth lay you low.

Wh 44

Like tulips in the Spring your cups lift up,
And, with a tulip-cheeked companion, sup
With joy your wine, or e'er this azure wheel
With some unlocked for blast upset your cup.
