Why blame the tipplers for their yearning eyes,
When the wine itself dances so ravishingly
In the cup?
I had hoped that when the Cupbearer arrived
He would quench my thirst.
But alas, he has come and gone,
And my thirst has been intensified.
O Cupbearer, let those long divided embrace one another,
And through the intoxication of your love,
Make all mankind truly human.
