1 AWAKE! for Morning in the Bowl of Night Has flung the Stone that puts the Stars to Flight: And Lo! the Hunter of the East has caught The Sultan's Turret in a Noose of Light. 2 Dreaming when Dawn's Left Hand was in the Sky, I heard a Voice within the Tavern cry, "Awake, my Little Ones, and fill the Cup Before Life's Liquor in its Cup be dry." 3 And as the Cock crew, those who stood before The Tavern shouted — "Open then the Door! You know how little while we have to stay, And once departed, may return no more."
