The morning is pleasant & fresh, arise O Saki
Pour into the jar the wine left over from last night
That we may drink again & take pleasure anew
In this one moment of existence which tomorrow will be but a legend


P 743

Blithe and fair is the mom; skinker, up! With the rest
Of our yesternight's liquor the flagon invest:
With the Friend let us drink and make merry to-day,
For to-morrow's a froward companion at best.

Th 513

Wake, Saki! for the day dawn 's bright and fair.
With last night's wine for me the cup prepare.
With loved ones drink we and make glad to-day.
For the To-morrow naught for thee will care.
