Calcutta nr. 408
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
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.
