Awake! Bring wine! A curious guest
Is come, though not to stay;
He hungers to complete his quest:
But not today!
Sit down, sir. Sit! I’ll not deny
You’re halfway in the right,
You’ll doubtless prove it, by and by:
But not tonight!
You see the Hanged Man in the cards,
The Hermit and the Seer?
Their shields may shatter into shards:
But not this year!
I’ve spied your shadow on the wall,
And have but this to say:
That, I I shall come, sir, when you call:
But not this day!
