On the skirt of the disloyal friend I lay my hand
I drink and shatter my good name against a stone
I barter the prayer carpet for one cup of wine
I give my reputation to the wine & drink to the dregs


P 605

The hand on the skirt of the faithless friend will we clap;
Wine drink we and good reputation on ill we clap;
The prayer-rug we sell to buy us a cup of wine
And repute on the stones to shatter and spill we clap.

Th 740

We 'll grasp the faithless loved one's garment hem,
Drink wine and good name will we clash with shame,
And sell the prayer-rug for a single cup,
Squander and shatter on the stones, fair fame!
