          ÉGLOGA VI
          VILLANCICO

«Come let us cat and drink to-day,
And sing, and laugh, and banish sorrow,
For we must part to-morrow.

»In Antruejo's honour — fill
The laughing cup with wine and glee,
And feast and dance with eager will,
And crowd the hours with revelry,
For that is wisdom's counsel still—
To day be gay, and banish sorrow,
For we must part to-morrow.

»Honour the saint —the morning ray
Will introduce the monster death;
There 's breathing space for joy to-day,
To-morrow ye shall gasp for breath;
So now be frolicsome and gay,
And tread joy's round and banish sorrow,
For we must part to-morrow».

1495
