Ere that we get splendour from the times
Let us drink wine with one another today
For this wheel of heaven in time, to sweep us away
Will not give us much pardon as we drink water


P 585

To-day that no dolour from Fate malign drink we,
Together once more of the juice of the vine drink we;
For the Angel of Doom, in the hour of our passing hence,
Will grant us no quarter whilst somewhat of wine drink we.

Th 807

Ere at Fate's hand we drink the Draught of Pain,
To-day with one another wine we 'll drain;
For the Death Angel in our passing hour,
To drink e'en water will no quarter deign.
