Wine & lees with a beautiful face & the brink of the stream
As long as I can I will go in for luxury & cheerfulness
So long as I have been, & am & will be
I have drunk, do drink & will drink wine.


P 331

With a fair-faced maid and wine rose-red, by the streamlet's brink,
Of ease and leisure I'll take my pleasure nor pause to think:
I was not aye, but am to-day and yet will be;
I've drunk of yore and drink e'ermore and yet will drink. 

Th 307

With fair maid and red wine by marge of rill,
Of joy and mirth the while I take my fill;
I was not but I am, and yet will be,
I have drunk and drink now and will drink still.
