Calcutta nr. 458
Since my friend the Saki knows my qualities
The Saki will find a hundred kinds of each sort
When I am sad he gives wine of his own accord
And the Saki transgresses all my limitations.
Since that my kind especial knoweth the skinker,
An hundred bolts of all sorts [on me] draweth the skinker:
Whenas I flag,lo! wine, on her own account, until
She bringeth me back to myself bestoweth the skinker.
Since Saki knows my sort especially,
He draws a hundred kinds of subtlety,
When I pause he gives wine of his own wont
And by the limit of myself brings me!
