Calcutta nr. 76
Today whose name is Friday
Drink wine from the flagon itself, what need is there of a glass ?
If every day you drink one flagon of wine
Drink two today for today is the Seyyid of the Times
En ce jour d'aujourd'hui que l'on nomme adinè (vendredi), laisse lá la coupe (trop petite) et bois du vin dans un bol. Si les autres jours tu n'en buvais qu'un (bol), aujourd'hui bois-en deux, car c'est le grand jour par excellence.
To-day since it Friday, the day hight of grace, is,
Drink wine from the bowl, for the cup out of place is:
Nay, on weekdays one bowl an thou quaffest, to-day
Drink two, for that Friday the prince of the days is.
To-day 's Adina called in common phrase,
Drink wine from bowls then, in the wine-cup's place;
And if you drink on week days but one bowl.
To-day drink two, for 'tis the chief of days.
