Raise yourself up from the skirt of this wheel (of L)
With 2 friends rise from one collar
The flagon which to the time is not strong of head & foot
Do not curtail your wine, for this is a long story


P 661

An if thou know to seize the skirt of Fortune fair,
God wot, thou may'st defy Life's load of toil and care;
But, if thy band's o'er short to cope withal, beware!
Withdraw it thence, for long's the word of the affair.

Th 660

On Fortune's hem alluring young and old.
Untrammelled by your load at once take hold;
But if your hand for the emergency
Be short, give o'er, for long 's the tale when told.
