Alcaeus Poems : Wine's Sting

He thinks that he is then most blessed
When he at drinking is the best.
Yet though sweet wine his heart delight,
Its curse rebounds with twofold might:
His head weighed down with heaviness,
He chides his soul and does confess
Repentance in his grief. Not then
"Drink! drink!" is still a pleasing strain.
