Calcutta nr. 214
Your substance will not become a covering for your existence
Nor will anyone’s desire become his desire
Oh Saki whether you give wine or do not give it
Know that all heads will descend (into the dust)
Take heart, for yet new the festival moon will be
And none in distress for the needed boon will be.
Bethink thee, skinker, if wine thou give us or not,
Our heads in the dust laid low eftsoon will be.
