O Eloquent Wine ! if you are good in the cup
You bind fetters upon the feet of wisdom,
O you give protection to no one who drinks of you
Until you place its very essence in his hand


P 777

O delectable wine, a spell in the bowl thou layest!
In fetters the feet of the reason wit-whole thou layest!
To who of thee drinketh quarter on no wise thou givest
Till open to view the pearl of his soul thou layest!

Th 845

Thou lurkest in the cup, O pleasing wine!
Sound Reason's feet in bonds thou dost entwine;
Whoever drinks of thee no quarter gets
Till oped his pearl in his palm placed doth shine.
