ay sâqî, az-ân bâda ke awwal dâd-î

riTlê dô dar andâz-o be-y-afzâ shâdî

yâ châshniyê az-ân na-bâyast namûd

yâ mast-o kharâb kon, chô sar be-g'shâd-î




English Translation



O cupbearer, from that wine which you first gave,

Toss in two [more] cups worth and increase (my) happiness.

Either a taste of it must not be made known,

Or, if you have opened the [jug's] top, you must make (me) drunk
and ruined.
