This caravan of life passes mysteriously;
Mayest thou seize the moment that passes happily
Cup-bearer, why grieve about the sorrow of thy patrons
Bring forth the wine-cup, for the night wanes.

 

Bodl 60

This caravan of life passes by mysteriously;
mayest thou seize the moment that passes happily!
Cup-bearer, why grieve about the to-morrow of thy patrons?
give us a cup of wine, for the night wanes.

Chr 97

This caravan of life passes by like a wonder. Mayst thou
discover the moment that passes by with delight.
Sáqí, why dost thou trouble thyself with the To-morrow
of thy fellows? Bring a cup, for the night passes by.

F4 48

A Moment's Halt--a momentary taste
Of BEING from the Well amid the Waste--
And LO!--the phantom Caravan has reach'd
The NOTHING it set out from--Oh, make haste!

HA 48a

This caravan of life passes by mysteriously;
Mayest thou seize the moment that passes happily!
Cup-bearer, why grieve about the to-morrow of thy patrons?
Give us a cup of wine, for the night wanes. 

Nic 106

Cette caravane de la vie passe d'une manière bien étrange! Sois sur tes gardes, ami, car c'est le temps de la joie qui s'échappe ainsi! Ne t'inquiète donc pas du chagrin qui demain attend nos amis, et apporte-moi vite la coupe, car vois comme la nuit s'écoule! 

P 251

This caravan of Life, since swift of flight it passeth,
Enjoy the moment's space when in delight it passeth:
Why fret thyself for friends and their to-morrow's troubles,
Skinker? Come, fill the cup, for see the night, it passeth. 

Th 13

Life's caravan moves on in mystery,
Seize then the joyous moments as they fly.
Why fret, boy, o'er the morrow of thy friends?
Bring forth the cup, for night is hast'ning by!

Wh 136

Life's caravan is hastening on its way;
Brood not on troubles of the coming day,
But fill the wine-cup ere sweet night be gone,
And snatch a pleasant moment, while you may.
