O friend withdrew your heart from the oppression of the enemy
Enjoy a friend & good wine & sparkling wine
Say to men of skill draw in your collars
And from the vulgar unworthy people draw in your skirt


P 497

Draughts of bright wine, with a smooth-cheeked fair, draw thou;
The heart's skirt in from the enemy, care, draw thou:
With a fair-faced friend come sit and forget thyself;
The wede of self-consciousness off for e'er draw thou.

Th 801

Quaff sparkling wine with fair one at thy side,
From foes' oppression far, with sweetheart bide!
Sit with a smooth-cheeked maid and self forget;
And doff the robe of vanity and pride!
