With very acrid old wine let us drink
And in Ramazan let us drink on Friday night
The lawful grape itself we will put into the jar
That God may make it acrid, for us to drink on Friday


P 588

Bitter wine, old and bitter, for ever I swill;
E'en o' Ramazan Friday forenights I drink still.
The grape, which is lawful, O God, in the jar
Make not bitter, to hinder me drinking my fill!

Th 808

Wine old and bitter I drink all I can,
And e'en ere Friday nights in Ramazan,
The grape itself made lawful, in the jar,
Lord, make not bitter, drinking it to ban!
