Omar Khayyam (472) “Wine, you are my insane sweetheart”

       Wine, you are 
                     my insane 
                                sweetheart;
            I hit the bottle and 
       have no fear of disgrace.
Drink so much Shiraz that 
                             all who see, ask:
              ‘Barrels of fine vintage, 
                        where did you 
                          come from?’
