Behold the dawn breaks & the skirt of night is torn
Arise & drink the morning draught, why are you disconsolate
Drink wine Oh heart for many dawns will break
Their faces will be towards us & ours will be towards the earth.


Nic 255

Vois l'aurore qui apparaît. Elle a déjà déchiré le voile de la nuit. Lève-toi donc, vide la coupe du matin. Pourquoi cette tristesse? Bois, ô mon cœur! bois, car ces aurores se succéderont, la face tournée vers nous, quand nous aurons la nôtre tournée vers la terre.

See, the day daws and the skirt of the night is rent!
Up, up, drink the draught of the morning! Why all this lament?
Quick, sweetheart, for many a morning yet will dawn,
Its face upon us and ours to the earthward bent.

Th 341

Lo! Dawn appears! and rends Night's robe in twain:
Why grieve? Arise! the draught of morning drain!
O, Sweetheart, drink! for many a breaking Dawn
Will look for us when we are dust again!

Wh 295

See! the dawn breaks, and rends night's canopy:
Arise! and drain a morning draught with me!
Away with gloom! full many a dawn will break
Looking for us, and we not here to see!
