Let Me Drink


Drinking (Photo credit: paukrus)

Let me drink, let me drink.

Let no pain, nor pleasure, nor grief, nor do joys bother me.

Help me my thoughts link,

For when I’m drunk, no sense in the world, whatsoever, do I see.


Let me drink, let me drink.

Be with me, listen to me, sing me a song and laugh with me;

Make a toast, let the glasses clink.

C’mon now, blurt out what you must, and set yourself free.


You always complain that I keep to my-self,

You say that for you I hardly care.

Today, however, I’d provide you all my help

And with you everything I will share.


Tomorrow when I come to my senses

No word that blames, or that kindles strife, can I hear!

But now, my heart flutters and dances.

Come, let me pour you the wines; let us drink and have no fear.

    Your post, written in four-line stanzas, reminds me of Madhushala, written by Harivansh Rai Bachchan, which also extols the virtue of drink, in Hindi.
