29Who has 1woe ? Who has sorrow ? Who has contentions ? Who has complaining ? Who has woundswithoutcause ? Who has redness of eyes ?
Those who 2linger long overwine, Those who go to ataste3mixedwine.
Do not look on the winewhen it is red, When it bsparkles in the cup, When it 4goesdownsmoothly ;
At the last it 5bites like a serpent And stings like a 6viper.
Your eyes will seestrangethings And your cmind will 7utterperversethings.
And you will be like one who liesdown in the dmiddle of the sea, Or like one who liesdown on the top of a emast.
"They 8struck me, but I did not becomefill ; They beat me, but I did not know it. When shall I awake ? I will 9seekganother drink."
