1I drank at every vine.
2    The last was like the first.
3I came upon no wine
4    So wonderful as thirst.
5I gnawed at every root.
6    I ate of every plant.
7I came upon no fruit
8    So wonderful as want.
9Feed the grape and bean
10    To the vintner and monger;
11I will lie down lean
12    With my thirst and my hunger.
