Give a cup of pure tulip (coloured wine) O Saki
Quench my fire with water O Saki
How long will you tell stories of the wit that “collars” my heart
My hand and my robe are wine O Saki


P 735

A cup of yon liquid ruby give here, O skinker!
My heart from the fire with water uprear, O skinker!
Whilst reason the rein of my soul yet in hand hath,
My hand to wine's skirt shall still adhere, O skinker!

Th 182

A cup of rubies pure give, Saki, pray!
That my heart's fire its liquid may allay.
While Reason, boy, shall grasp my spirit's rein,
Still on the skirt of wine my hand shall stay!
