Since life passes what matter if it be sweet or bitter,
When the cup is full, what matters Baghdad or Balkh
Drink wine for often after thee & me this moon
Will pass on from the last day of the month to the first & from the first to the last.

 

Bodl 47

Since life passes; what is Baghdad and what is Balkh?
When the cup is full, what matter if it be sweet or bitter?
Drink wine, for often, after thee and me, this moon
will pass on from the last day of the month to the first, and from the first to the last.

Chr 93

When life vanishes, what then is Baghdad, what is Balkh?
When the measure of our cup is full, what matter if the drink be sweet or bitter?
Drink wine, for after me and thee this moon will pass many times from the last day of the month
to to the first  of the next and from the first to the last.

F4 8

Whether at Naishápúr or Babylon,
Whether the Cup with sweet or bitter run,
The Wine of Life keeps oozing drop by drop,
The Leaves of Life keep falling one by one.

HA 8a

Since life passes; what is Baghdad and what is Balkh?
When the cup is full, what matter if it be sweet or bitter?
Drink wine, for often, after thee and me, this moon
Will pass on from the last day of the month to the first. and from the first to the last.

Nic 105

Puisque la vie s'écoule, qu'importe qu'elle soit douce ou amère? Puisque l'áme doit passer par nos lèvres, qu'importe que ce soit à Nichapour ou à Bèlkh? Bois donc du vin, car après toi et moi, la lune bien longtemps encore passera de son dernier quartier à son premier, et de son premier à son dernier.

P 236

At Balkh or at Baghdad what matters? Die we must.
The cup full, what skills sweet or bitter, pain or lust?
Drink wine, for many a moon will pass from full to new
And new to full again, when thou and I are dust.

Th 663

Since Life moves on, what matters sweet or sour?
What Balkh or Baghdad when the cup brims o'er?
Drink wine ! for oft this moon from new to full,
From full to new will pass and we no more!

Wh 134

When life is spent, what's Balkh or Nishapore?
What sweet or bitter, when the cup runs o'er?
Come drink! full many a moon will wax and wane
In times to come, when we are here no more.
