As the moments roll, let new joys inspire; Hebe fill the bowl, Orpheus tune the lyre. Let each cheerful heart Join the festive train Thus, before we part, we'll be young again. Cares and anxieties we now resign, Or drown them in a mighty bowl of wine; When dead, Deucalion may, if he think good, Drench our cold carcases in wat'ry flood.
